Regarding
Dangerous advertising by the roadside
Request

1. What guidance is issued by you to people asking permission to place advertising by the roadside ?

Many people are placing theirs at all the places most likely to distract drivers and increase the risk of an accident eg around roundabouts, on the approaches to junctions, pedestrian crossings, schools etc

If not, and without your claiming it isn't your responsibility ( make it your responsibility ), suggest you do so asap.

 If you have no such guidance, how quickly will you rectify the situation ?

2. What measures do you take to deter dangerous placement ?

 If you have no such measures, how quickly will you rectify the situation ?
