Ban billboards in Poland

The city of Warsaw has ten times more billboards than the considerably larger city of Paris. To counter this trend the Sejm passed a law limiting outdoor advertising on Friday. But even that won't be enough, the liberal-conservative politician Paweł Pisorski writes on his blog for the portal naTemat with an eye to Luxembourg: "This is a step in the right direction because municipalities can charge maximum fines of 5,000 złoty [1,200 euros]. ... But in fact this fine would have to be ten - or even one hundred - times higher to be effective. In Luxembourg, by contrast, there are no large advertisements or billboards at all. The country is small but economically well-developed. The regulation was simply agreed to and everyone observes it. Wouldn't it be better to adopt this solution instead of creating a whole set of new laws?"
