     5  state  while  operating  a  digital billboard or other type of billboard
     6  that uses flashing, intermittent or moving lights.
     7    2. As used in this section, the term "digital billboard" shall mean  a
     8  one or multi-sided outdoor advertising sign that displays digital images
