    ...but it appears to be a mobil billboard. A box truck with the rear and sides equipped with a 3 sided vertical changing signs, plus the small space above the cab also carries the same. So the entrepreneur driver/investor is advertising for 12 different business at once while driving on the highway. The signs change about every 5 seconds, via 1/3rd of a circle twist. Mattress sale, dog grooming, hair salon, ect.

    How many people see this daily? Apparently more than see a stationary billboard. This is as intrusive as tv or radio, the motion catches your eyes. Maybe such has not yet invaded your area, feel lucky...

    I've seen these on the road. Another way for the industry I hate most to get in your face

    What will they think of next? Hopefully there won't be one advertising Victoria's Secret, that might cause a few wrecks!

    The Car Wraps if that's what these are pay about $300-$450/mo depending on your location and the number of miles you drive per month. There's even places that provide the car while there's others where your car is 'wrapped' in a way that doesn't affect the paint but is able to withstand the daily wear & tear of travel.

    I think it would be a great extra income for someone who commutes to a city from their rural life daily. :)

    The ones in our areas are huge video billboards, probably 8'x12', on the back of a light delivery truck chassis. Quite common and no more distracting than other billboards. Novel approach, really. Quite an evolution from the old sandwich board signs that became popular during the depression.

    We've got them up here in Gainesville too. They've been around some months now, maybe a year or more. Struck me as particularly crazy when gas was at $3.15 a gallon, but there they were.

    We have quite a number of those around here. Usually Hummer H2's advertising for the strip clubs.
