Fail: One-minute parking sign

LOS ANGELES – Drivers in Los Angeles are known to chafe at the city’s confusing parking restrictions and pricey penalties, but an erroneous street sign spotted last week had drivers scratching their heads.

The sign said “1 minute parking” and was posted near the intersection of San Vicente Boulevard and Montana Avenue. A photo of the sign went viral online, eliciting amusement and outrage alike.

Transportation department spokesman Jonathan Hui confirmed Monday that the sign was a typo, not a prank.

Hui said the transit agency didn’t receive a formal complaint about the 60-second parking window, but a staff member noticed the online chatter and reported it for repairs.

The faulty sign was replaced Friday with a “1 hour parking” sign.
