13 Of Los Angeles' Most Ridiculous Parking Signs

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

After reporting on the one-minute parking sign in Brentwood, we decided to ask our readers to submit the most complicated or confusing parking signs they'd seen around town. Some of them seem to require some kind of decoding ring, while others are just silly.

If anyone sees an incorrect, broken or downright confusing sign in Los Angeles proper, they can report it to LADOT here. There's also a mobile app, Park Safe L.A., that claims it can help interpret. We do have one word of advice: whatever you do, don't park in the douche zone.
