Government Technology: Pennsylvania Department of Transportation officials have warned Philadelphia’s mayor and City Council that the wireless-Internet kiosks being installed throughout the city may violate rules against advertisements along state and federal roads, a breach that could cost the city millions in government funds for projects like the planned cap over I-95 near Penn’s Landing.
The kiosks “may be considered outdoor advertising devices subject to PennDOT regulation" under a law banning most advertising along roads that include some of Center City’s busiest throughways, deputy secretary for highway administration George McAuley wrote in a Dec. 20 letter to Mayor Kenney and Council President Darrell L. Clarke.
