To Lisa Muri: Is there anything we can do about the distracting billboards?

Dear Lisa Muri,
I’m happy to say that I voted for you in the last municipal election.
As a concerned citizen of North Vancouver district, I want to bring up a point with you. There are freestanding, electronic, full colour advertisement screens pointed at Highway 1 just before you get onto the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge. In my experience, this part of the highway can be very dangerous because there are so many lanes merging onto the highway and there is limited visibility. This is not the kind of place where you need distracting advertisements. Those ads risk peoples’ lives and they do absolutely nothing to benefit the people of North Vancouver, as a matter of fact they clutter up our landscapes and uglify our city.
Could you please bring this up in council or pursue this somehow? Why is this legal?
Thanks for your time,
