San Juan, Puerto Rico, Bans Ads On Public Property

The San Juan municipal government (Puerto Rico's capital city) will penalize anyone who uses public structures such as lampposts and bridges to display posters and ads.

"According to Saurí Santiago, this new initiative will help the municipal government save time and money in equipment, paint, and special brigades to remove posters and ads. He said these resources should be used for revitalizing and beautifying the island’s capital."
