(b) Advertising devices which contain, include, or are illuminated by any flashing, scrolling, intermittent, or moving light or lights, or video or animation, are prohibited on divided, limited access highways, except those devices giving emergency alerts or public service information such as time, date, temperature, weather, traffic, road conditions, or similar information. Brightness shall be adjusted in response to changes in light levels so that the signs are not unreasonably bright for the safety of the motoring public.
