The shakedown cruise is over. First-year Tampa City Council member Joseph Caetano has found a cause. He wants to rid the city of advertising-sign carriers, some in costume, who can be found working some of Tampa’s busier streets – such as New Tampa’s Bruce B. Downs Boulevard. He says they can be distracting to drivers.
And they surely can be, even to motorists on cell phones. And as a priority, it’s certainly more helpful than the secession of New Tampa.
