Mayor Ard van der Tuuk of Westerkwartier banned all forms of outward display on the Postdijk viaduct, between Marum and Frieschepalen, with immediate effect on Monday. According to the municipality, flags and lamps distract road users and create dangerous situations on the Groningen-Drachten motorway.
