How is the Billboard epidemic that seems to be sweeping the nation there in California?
I saw another's post about Billboards in the Colorado section and thought I would ask about that in this one.
I am curious as to how much scenery is deposed off in the Beautiful state of California due to Billboards all over the place?

Is there a law against them in your state?
if not then,
How do you feel about having Billboards everywhere you go in California?

Thanks for your answers ahead of time.

California has lots of Billboards. The scenery doesn't change because the population, homes, and businesses are all squished together. California is 70% big city. Basically there is no real scenery. The biggest difference between California and the West Coast States is Space, Space, Space. Now, maybe in Central California it's different.

I live in the Coachella Valley, which is a desert community 125 miles east of Los Angeles. It's comprised of several small towns, including world-famous Palm Springs. These cities started as seasonal resort towns (and still are but people live here year-round now). These towns do not allow billboards, and they plant annuals a couple of times a year to beautify. You see tall mountains, palm trees, flowering trees, big skies, flowers everywhere, green belts (although less grass over the years and more natural desert plantings to conserve water). It's amazing how wonderful a place can look when the city councils have the foresight to ban billboards. Look into Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and La Quinta. Expensive, but nice!

I mostly agree with Dick, but there are billboards in Cat City and a few along Hwy. 111 and of course a few along the 10.
