Outdoor advertising is visual pollution. Billboards, bus shelters, building sites, whatever form it takes, advertisements foist their commercial messages on a pliant public.
 Outdoor advertising encroaches on more and more public space, reaching places where advertising should not go. They infest the public domain in sizes that dominate – they block public vistas and dwarf citizens with their presence. 
And it is usually people from poorer areas who are the major targets and who suffer most from this pollution. It is bad for public health, bad for the environment. 
Time to push back harder against this contamination and reclaim our public space.
