The Billboard of ill repute! Clear Channel rolled out the welcome map with Wanted Criminals and HIV Tests on their new LED Billboard on Medlock Bridge Rd & State Bridge Rd.
These advertisements are all located next to the 2nd most dangerous intersection in Metro Atlanta. There are 4 schools and 2 churches in close proximity to the bright sign.
It’s unfortunate, that Johns Creek is the safest City in Georgia, and has to advertise Wanted Criminals whose crimes were committed elsewhere.
So how does Clear Channel make money, if they don’t have full paying ads?
The eyesore in the sky is also a spy in the sky.
Clear Channel’s controversial RADAR program, tracks, and targets residents with their cellphone data. That raises local concerns with the billboards so close to residential communities. Are they tracking within the homes too?
The billboard settlement terms negotiated by Mayor Bodker and Councilwoman Cori Davenport proudly toted spreading the billboards throughout the city. Rather than concentrating them to a few roads.
With the billboards spread to the 4 corners and middle of the City, Clear Channel has the ability to gather data throughout Johns Creek.
