SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah residents are slamming an auto dealership’s billboard ad as a sign of disrespect toward police officers.

KUTV reports (https://bit.ly/29hP0sF) that Ken Garff Automotive Group in Salt Lake City is receiving major backlash on social media for the advertisements.

The sign features a traffic officer next to the words, “He doesn’t hear you. We do.”

Dozens of people have made their outrage known in comments on the company’s Facebook page.

The dealership responded Sunday afternoon, saying the ads were in poor taste and that it did not mean to make light of the work of law enforcement.

Garff Automotive also promised that all billboards, which are on display in at least two places, would be taken down in the next two days.
