The brightly colored vans advertising "Topless Maids $99" caused a stir in Burbank last year when they were seen parked on city streets for days on end, prompting officials to publicly denounce them as eyesores and visual blight.
Last week, the City Council voted to ban vehicles whose main purpose is advertising. There are some exemptions, such as pizza and mail delivery vehicles.
"What we're capturing with this ordinance is those signs that are bolted to a van, leaned against a van, trailers that are unhitched and left in the public right of way," Deputy City Planner Patrick Prescott said at Tuesday's meeting.
Senior Assistant City Atty. Joe McDougall said the ordinance is "viewpoint neutral" and does not regulate the content on the mobile advertising vehicles.
