All of TfL digital advertising locations are assessed on an individual basis, taking into account each site's specific context and a comprehensive risk assessment. All screens are installed and operated in accordance with the relevant planning consent. As such, TfL has taken the necessary steps to ensure that all of its digital advertising locations are suitable and will not have a negative impact on the safety of road users or pedestrians.
