PITTSBURG, Calif. (AP) - Pittsburg has lifted its ban on electronic freeway billboards and officials in the San Francisco Bay Area city say the move could bring more than $100,000 in new revenue.

The Oakland Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1uTtpJ9 ) the City Council voted unanimously to end the prohibition on electronic ads along Highway 4 - provided the billboards are approved by the council and that they adhere to specific requirements and restrictions.

The billboards are required to have static messages, not video or moving objects. And each advertisement will have to stay up for a minimum of eight seconds to minimize driver distraction.
