City officials in Reno, Nevada are recommending changes to the zoning laws to treat digital billboards as standard billboards. These zoning changes would in effect allow more digital billboards to be placed in Reno. Opponents to the zoning changes believe the billboards are a safety hazard. In addition, critics believe that these billboards affect the aesthetics of the City. The Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials concluded that the digital billboards present a road hazard.
