You’ve seen some confusing parking signs that pile regulation after regulation atop one another, but this one may have broken a record -although briefly. The signs in front of Linwood E. Howe Elementary School in Culver City, California, went up Thursday, but only stayed up a couple of days before being cut in half. The original 15-foot signs would have drawn even more traffic just to see them! According to CBS Los Angeles (warning: multiple auto play videos):
The signs were meant to clarify a new drop-off and pick-up procedure for when classes resume at the school, but as CBS2’s Juan Fernandez reported, neighbors just found them confusing.
Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells said the plan was for the signs to only be displayed temporarily.
“They just didn’t look temporary,” she said. “So they were going to be taken down. And it looked like … whoa. It was pretty impressive.”
By late Friday, half of the signs were gone, although that still left more than a few regulations for spaces near the school.
I wouldn’t even think of trying to park in that area -the fine for illegal parking is $73. -via Arbroath
