There are a lot of ridiculous parking signs in L.A., but this one-minute parking sign is really something special. The photo of the sign was originally uploaded to imgur and posted to Reddit by user lauraedavis.

Fellow redditor and apparent internet detective maskdmirag, who says he works at LADOT, tracked the sign down to 11777 San Vicente Blvd in Brentwood. He says he sent the photo to the appropriate department, who verified that it was supposed to be a one-hour sign. They’ll be replacing the sign, but it’ll take them a couple weeks because they need to remake the sign first. If you see a confusing or incorrect sign, you can report it to LADOT here.

Seen an even crazier sign? Please, send the most ridiculous parking signs you've encountered around town to with the subject line "Parking Signs" and tell us where it is.

UPDATE, June 20, 5 p.m.: A reporter at Westside Today went to visit the sign and found that it had already been replaced with a correct one-hour parking sign.
