These photos were taken within just a couple of blocks on Abbot Kinney. It was obvious the gremlins had played with the painting of curb colors to the utter dismay of many a shopper looking for that place to put the wheels. Some of the colors were so deteriorated that one did not know whether it was a joke or a possibility.
It was so confusing to Update that a uniformed Parking Officer was summoned to make the determination. It was a possible red in front of a building with no intersection near. The Parking Officer said it was a definite “No Parking” and was for a possible fire engine. (Paramedic might fit but no way for the big red engine.) The yellow was for loading. Thought all loading and unloading was from the middle on Abbot Kinney. Most confusing.
The Abbot Kinney association should call DOT or email them for help at LADOT.WesternDistrict@lacity.org.
