Ludicrously Tall Culver City Parking Signs Cut Down to Normal

New, 14 comments

Last Thursday evening, Culver City put up 10 parking sign poles around Linwood Howe Elementary School that stretched improbably skyward, rising about 15 feet (hard to photograph, a tipster told us). They swiftly took the title of Los Angeles's Most Ridiculous Parking Signs. Curbed reported the story early on Friday afternoon and a few hours later, the signs were down. (They were never any kind of hoax or art project, although that was not a bad guess.) Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells commented on the post: "Yes, this looks ridiculous, so I called the traffic engineer. The signs will be taken down this afternoon." Later in the day she posted the "after" photo above, showing the signs have been taken down to a more manageable eight or so feet. Apparently, the signs noting the "student valet service" were only supposed to be temporary to inform parents about a new pick-up/drop-off program, according to the LA Times.
