The Tallinn City Government sent a bill to the City Council that would see all outdoor advertising of alcohol and tobacco products, as well as quick and payday loans banned.

No such ads will no longer be displayed on billboards and public objects.

“By public objects we mean for example bus stops and train stations, rubbish bins, changing cubicles in public beaches, public restrooms and other such places,” Deputy Mayor Arvo Sarapuu said.

Campaigns that breach the ban will be subjected to a five-fold tax rate.

The City Government will also not allow construction companies to sport their brands on the fencing around construction sites tax free.
