From Assembly member Mike Feurer: Stop Urban Blight: Report Illegal Mobile Billboards!

Thanks to a bill that Assembly member Bob Blumenfield and I jointly authored last year, the City of Los Angeles can now take action to get ugly mobile billboards off our streets.  These signs create a safety hazard by impairing the visibility of pedestrians and drivers, reduce on-street parking, and constitute visual blight. LAPD has stepped up enforcement of the ordinance and has set up a hotline so that you can help them locate and remove these trailers from the streets of Los Angeles.

If you see a billboard mounted on a trailer and parked on a public street (not private property), please call the mobile billboard reporting hotline at either (818) 752-5100 or (213) 485-4184, press 2 and be prepared to provide the trailer's license plate number and the street block location. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact my district office.
