Its spam, not all spam is email. Unsolicited mail. 



Although one is illegal and one isn't. Although it doesn't seem that span is policed all the much these days

Just spend whatever you were going to spend on printing, on Facebook advertising. At least you can target it to people who could be interested. Instead of a scattergun approach. And I highly doubt that Westfield or another mall owner will allow you to conduct advertising on their properties without their permission. They will probably want to charge you to do so as well.

I hate car spam. It's just a piece of litter that I now have responsibility for.

andrewNZ: If I ever catch someone putting a flier on my car, we'll be having a disagreement.

If you're asking because you want to do it, I'd like to... suggest you reconsider.

 

 

 

When it has been a business that has done this I have rung that business and told them what happened and how I would never use them for anything

 

and more to the point I would tell everyone I know that they are a a pack of w*nkers and should be avoided.

 

I have also pointed out to one company that I would bill them for a new set of wiper blades and I would take it through the small claims if they did it again

 

and I have also threatened one company with a police complaint of unlawfully interfering with a motor vehicle.

That's a lot of aggression. Windscreen flyers just might be counterproductive. I don't like them either, though they don't enrage me. Far better in today's world to use digital media and appropriate fora.

 

Edit to add: If you must have flyers, put them up in public spaces like supermarkets and libraries and maybe on streetlights or whatever if allowed. Ask shops and fast food joints if you can put them in the windows. Some probably won't mind, especially if it is for a worthwhile activity. You can also probably get free publicity in community newspapers.

The few times I've had this done to me, I felt like firebombing the businesses in question. I'd go so far as to say I can't think of any other form of advertising that annoyed me so much.. You just don't touch someones car.

Westfield will nail you to the wall if you try it at any of their sites.

 

Generally, you need permission of the land owner.

Not only is it annoying but people tend to pull off the adverts then throw them on the ground. So if you want to make it look like you are just littering with your adverts go ahead, it certianly doesn't help your cause.
