One Minute Parking Sign Goes Viral in L.A.

Motorists in
Los Angeles are known to chafe at the city's confusing parking
restrictions and pricey penalties, but an erroneous street sign spotted
last week had drivers scratching their heads.

The
sign said "1 minute parking" and was posted near the intersection of San
Vicente Boulevard and Montana Avenue. A photo of the sign went viral
online, eliciting amusement and outrage alike.

Transportation department spokesman Jonathan Hui confirmed Monday that the sign was a typo, not a prank.

Hui
says the transit agency didn't receive a formal complaint about the
60-second parking window, but a staff member noticed the online chatter
and reported it for repairs.

The faulty sign was replaced Friday with a "1 hour parking" sign.
