    • Abstract:
      The potential for driver distraction on highways is a major safety concern for state

      departments of transportation (DOTs). In the current technological climate, drivers have

      the potential to be distracted by cell phones, mp3 players and other media devices. Other

      technology, such as digital billboards, can also potentially disrupt driver concentration.

      Though billboards and other outdoor advertising have been used in the United States for

      over 100 years (Outdoor Advertising Association of America 2006), the advent of high

      quality graphics on digital billboards presents new, unknown variables. Digital billboards

      are extremely bright signs that often display flashing or blinking messages, possibly even

      video and are being produced in sizes that (with enhanced quality) makes them visible

      from longer distances.

      The purpose of this report is to review studies and publications on the relation of large

      digital billboards to driver distraction and overall highway safety.
