Electronic Message Sign Distracting

Reported in the Potholes / Highway Condition category anonymously at 21:02, Thu 26 September 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1782605.

There is a a big electronic road sign on the side of the road that has an extremely bright and distracting advert for smart move. Normally this sign has Messages warning of roadworks and messages about road safety. This is now showing a big white and blue advert about live travel info. This is not only distracting but it promoting the use of the internet whilst driving.

How much money has been wasted on these signs as I have noticed more of them around the town on my commute.
