Noticed a billboard this morning with two bright white pin holes ruining an otherwise TV quality message. Upon closer inspection it looks like someone shot at the board and those were two broken lights. I think you can expect more of that.

The one off of BA (I think by Dollar) had one of it's rotations of ads come up saying "Smile, your on camera" or something to that effect. Apparently that one was getting shot up on a regular basis, so they installed a camera to catch the person responsible.  No idea if they succeeded or not.

Same with the one by the old Safeway on Denver.

That one popped up right after the rules were changed.  It made some folks in the neighborhood across the highway very angry.  Their view of the skyline went from nice to not nice.

You can thank a couple of former city councilors for that, they over-ruled the recommendations they were given and decided that billboards needed to be a lot brighter, more numerous and flash more often.

Meanwhile, Mcdonalds shows they have no class:
