Department of DIY Strikes Again: “Except Bikes” Signs Appear on the Westside

A new series of D.I.Y. signage is popping up around the Westside.  The new "except bikes" signs remind road users that the street side parking restrictions don't apply to sidewalk parking for cyclists.  It's not just a thumb in the eyes to drivers, but a reminder that if you choose to leave the car at home, the Westside's notorious "parking problems" all of a sudden don't seem so pressing.

So far we've spotted signs at the North West corner Venice & Glendon, on Hughes just south of Exposition, and Palms just north of Venice.  We're trying to see how widespread this signage program is, so if you see more "except bikes" signs, let us know in the comments section.
