The City of Technology of the Capital City of Prague (THMP), which provides the removal of unauthorized installed outdoor advertising media for Prague, will be removed by thirteen this month.
“Today we are dismantling advertising space on Radlická Street. Not only are they placed illegally, they often do not have a secure anchorage, so someone could injure or damage property. Therefore, we decided not to wait for anything and remove them as soon as possible, “explained the city councilor Jan Chabr, adding that there is no carrier, that the areas are very close to the expressway, which could have fatal consequences in the event of an accident.
Illegal billboards are removed by two crews of THMP employees with a truck with a hydraulic arm and an assembly platform. “This month we have already dismantled advertising media in Kunratice, Zličín and Letňany, today we have several areas in Radlice. Unfortunately, it sometimes happens that new carriers appear on the spot shortly after removal. We solved this for the last time at Kunratický les, “described Tomáš Novotný, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors of THMP.
The city most often obtains information about illegally placed billboards from individual city districts where it is located, from citizens, or on the basis of regular inspections.
According to Jan Chabr, the removed outdoor banners will go to the THMP warehouse, where they will wait for their owners to apply for them. “Before returning them, we will of course demand compensation from the owner for unjust enrichment for the unauthorized use of urban land, and given that we have done so in the public interest, the cost of removal and future placement in the warehouses of the real capitals,” he said.
Last September, Prague removed twenty-two billboards that were illegally located on city land, especially in suburbs. The city intends to continue solving the problem of illegal advertising.
