Where are all the billboards?Spoke Wrench

I was watching the Vuelta this morning and it suddenly occured to me - NO BILLBOARDS. Is all of Europe that way?

I live in Missouri. Missouri has some breath taking scenery when it's not blocked by billboards so that you can see it. A year or so ago, our state legislature considered a bill to limit the growth of billboard use. The billboard companies hurried to erect a bumper crop of new billboards before the new law could be passed. Then the legislature failed to enact the bill anyway.

On the other hand, the hockey Blues don't wear Wallmart sweaters and the baseball Cardinals didn't wear Budwiser on their uniforms.
