After our post last week about fake signs enforcing illegal billboards, the LA Weekly speaks to the anonymous caper. Why isn't this being enforced, the Weekly asks. "The city claims it doesn't have the money to enforce [against illegal billboards]," the bandit explained. "Why don't they simply collect all the signs and make Fuel buy them back? That could help solve the budget problem and provide city jobs that are now under the axe."
