PT Problem of the Day: All-over advertising reduces visibility on trams and buses

All-over tram advertising

While it may make sense for public transport operators to use advertising to earn more money (which, hopefully, funds extra services), buses and trams often have this type of all-over advertising, which limits visibility.

Even with some sections left unblocked, passengers find that, particularly at night, it becomes difficult to see where they are and which stop is next, particularly when the tram or train is crowded.
