A parking sign spotted in Culver City, California.

Sometimes you will see a picture on the internet, look at it and decide “that has to be photo-shopped.” At first glance when seeing this picture that was my thought. Well I was wrong, big government strikes again.

The signs were posted Thursday.

By Friday afternoon, the signs were gone, said Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells.

Sahli-Wells — who has a son who attends the school — said there have been parking and traffic problems in the area around the school for several years.

The towering signs “are an example of a good program with misguided communication,” Sahli-Wells said. “When I saw the number of signs, originally intended to communicate to the public and school community about the new procedures, it was clear to me and everyone else who saw them that rather than clarifying the new procedures, they were just confusing.” Read More…
