The hallowed practice of leaving cars on the street with "for sale" signs slapped in the windshield may soon become a banned activity in some neighborhoods, reports the Pasadena Star News. Tomorrow morning, the LA County Board of Supervisors will consider an ordinance introduced by Supervisor Gloria Molina that would effect cars parked on streets primarily in the east and north parts of the county. Neighborhoods affected would include East LA, Altadena, Littlerock, Rowland Heights and Florence-Firestone.

If the ordinance goes through, cars that are left out in designated areas could be removed or impounded.
