About 86 billboards in six densely populated districts are dangerous and might hurt pedestrians if they collapse, a study by the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong has found. Twenty-six billboards had been abandoned, lawmaker Starry Lee Wai-king said. She urged the Buildings Department to investigate. The department said it had to examine the study.
