The new law to rein in rampant outdoor advertising that ruins much of the visual attraction of Polish cities is disappointing and sure to prove toothless, Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz of Warsaw said.

“We are very, very disappointed indeed with what has happened in parliament,” Gronkiewicz-Waltz said. “The law has had all its teeth knocked out and what remains is not worth the paper it is printed on.”
The mayor of Warsaw called for higher penalties for illegal outdoor advertising, saying the maximum fine of PLN 5,000 is inadequate, when a large banner in the centre of Warsaw can bring in over PLN 100,000 a month. (an)
