Los Angeles may ban digital billboards on Uber, Lyft and taxi vehicles

Digital billboards atop personal vehicles would be banned under a motion up for discussion Wednesday by a Los Angeles City Council committee.

Councilman Bob Blumenfield said that local drivers have noticed an increasing number of digital billboards attached to the top of some Uber and Lyft ridehailing vehicles recently, and the signs he is targeting use digital LED technology to display changeable illuminated advertising.
