Mayor says 'ridiculous' parking signs must go

Mayor Says 'Ridiculous' Parking Signs Must Go

A series of very tall parking signs in Culver City were set to be taken down Friday after they were featured on a local news website, the city's mayor said.

Extremely complicated parking signs were drawing attention in Culver City, where the city's mayor said they were set to be taken down Aug. 22, 2014.

The signs, which appeared to have six to seven metal panels stacked on top of each other, were posted near Linwood Howe Elementary (map), according to CurbedLA, a planning news website.

Local resident Rob Stemm posted a photo of the signs on Instagram.

"Don't even think about parking on my street. You'll need a law degree to figure out if you're allowed to park here," Stemm wrote.

The signs have multiple references to school hours, Culver City Unified School District and related permits.

"This looks ridiculous," Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells wrote in a comment on the CurbedLA article.

She confirmed to KTLA that she asked the city's traffic engineers to have the signs taken down by 4 p.m. Friday.

I am going to go out on a limb here and guess that whoever came up with these signs must be a liberal.

It takes a special kind of stupid, of which only liberals are capable of, to make parking THIS complicated.

A clear sign that we have too many bureaucrats, that waste our tax dollars, so that it looks like they are doing something!

Whoever thought up these signs sounds like a windbag. A lot of talking with nothing to say.

I suspect someone in the place where they keep all such signs found stacks of them, and decided to have them put up and then wait to see how long it took for people to start complaining. That someone has a rather fiendish sense of humor......or else he lives in the area and wanted to have a parking place for himself, but didn't realize the signs would be put up everywhere on that street!

Hmmmm.......PERFECT example of liberal mindset" CONTROL, CONTROL, CONTROL every aspect of someone else's daily life! . And, PLEASE, spare me the lame anti-conservative barbs relating some equally stupid thing a conservative did because I have been a registered DEM voter over 45 years & I am sick & tired of the mean manipulative controlling far left winger liberals who have hijacked my once grand political party! ENOUGH! LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE! I am an educated adult who does NOT "need" YOU telling me what to eat, what to say, what to tolerate, who "hate", what to drive, where to work, who to listen to on TV, who to read, who to bend legal laws for so they can squat in my country at tax[payer expense, that under-aged children & ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS have more "rights" then legal Americans have, etc.

Then why don't you just stop associating with ANY party?

And WHY do YOU feel the NEED to CAPITALIZE almost EVERY other WORD you TYPE? Is your keyboard broken?

To notifier: Brian's misspelling was on purpose. He was making a statement which obviously went right over your head.
