Cycling Billboard I found on streetview...
Translation via google translate:
"release the spare tire, bike more."
If only we had that in the United States.
Sadly, the corporations that make money making us obese will have none of that. Anything "controversial" in the way of public service announcements is not allowed. Controversial means some subsidized industry is either made to look bad or would lose profits if people acted on the ad. Remember how quickly the anti-smoking ads were pulled in CA when the tobacco companies complained that they were being portrayed negatively? (One had a scene where tobacco executives were meeting around a table lamenting the need to find more customers because they had so many dying of lung cancer.)
Don't forget the automobile manufacturers. While the food industry is producing junk food, people are not exercising enough even to the point of commuting without a car.
