Take a Ride on the LA Freeway

Skippy, our favorite LA Blogger, reports that the Freeway Blogger launched a new ad campaign Tuesday--posting over 100 signs on LA Freeways protesting the War in Iraq and Bush's failure to find Osama.

On Tuesday, Sept. 7th, the Freewayblogger will post one hundred signs on LA area freeways protesting the war in Iraq and the failure to find Osama Bin Laden. The lone activist has posted over 2,000 handpainted signs on California freeways since the war began. According to the Freewayblogger, freeway signposting is the last opportunity open to the average individual to reach out directly to large numbers of their fellow citizens.

Why freeway signs?

When you put a sign on the freeway, people will read it until someone takes it down. Depending on its size, content and placement it can be seen by hundreds of thousands of people.
