The Stupidest Billboard in Los Angeles

This Billboard Creates an Obstacle Course Like Feel Adjacent to Culver Blvd.

As the City Council prepares to debate an ordinance restricting "supergraphic" billboards city-wide, our old friend Stephen Box sends along what could be the worst-placed billboard in all of Los Angeles.

From Soap Box LA:

The City of Los Angeles, in its infinite benevolence, has long foughtto maintain immunity from liability for the Class I "Bike Path"facilities such as the one pictured above, holding that they are trailsused for recreational activity and, as such, the user is responsiblefor any risk or injury.

At a glance, it is evident that thisBike Path is actually a well designed multi-use slalom course, popularwith the daredevil baby carriage pushing crowd and probably popularwith extreme dogwalkers and cyclists who who like to live on the edge.

Somehowthis Billboard was built on this land. It either had a permit or itdidn't. If it has a permit, the person who issued this permit should beheld accountable for their actions. If it doesn't have a permit, thebillboard should be removed, posthaste!

I would add that if this billboard did receive a permit to be built as it is pictured above, whoever issued the permit should be removed, posthaste!
