Sign ... Sign ... Everywhere A Sign

Just drive down any stretch of road, and chances are you'll see billboard advertisements everywhere. In fact, they have become so commonplace, many don't even see them anymore. Really ... when is the last time you NOTICED a billboard? (If you have to think about it ... you don't remember.) Many states are now ratifying bills to have cell phone usage banned while operating a motor vehicle, unless a hands free device is used. (I wonder if this also applies to motorcycles?) I really can't say I blame lawmakers, many traffic accidents are caused by drivers paying too much attention to the phone conversation and not enough attention to everyone else on the road. With that in mind, why do billboards continue to keep popping up at amazing rates all over the place? I'd personally rather be near a driver that wasn't listening ... rather than not looking.
