distractions on the road
I was stopped at the Yonge & Dundas lights, going south. There are 2 billboards, gigantic TV screens, one from Chum and one from Comcast, and when I was watching them, the light turned green. Um, hi, those are potentially dangerous. I was totally transfixed by the billboards, trying to figure out if the Chum one was a feed from a TV channel or a loop made just for that billboard screen, and if Comcast is that cable company in the States and why they were advertising at the Yonge Dundas square. However if you drive through there all the time, I’m sure you kind of tune them out. Also it was at night too, I’m sure the billboards are not as noticeable during the day. The ones on the Gardiner are off to one side, but this Chum one was pretty hard to miss, pretty much dead centre above my head.
