Broken: Hidden "No Parking" sign in San Francisco

ObscurednoparkingMike Kaufman submits a picture taken in San Francisco, CA:

"In August 2006, my daughter got a parking ticket in San Francisco for parking on Marina Boulevard on a street cleaning day.  However, as shown by photograph above which I took a few days later (as part of an appeal of the ticket), the relevant "No Parking" sign cannot be seen because a tree has grown around it."

P.S. Mike wrote in after his original submission to add: "My daughter Tanya's appeal of the parking ticket was successful! However, I'm not sure whether the city has bothered to fix the problem of the hidden sign."


This very nearly happened to me in Albany, NY. I lucked out because the security guard in the building I was visiting saw me park there and tipped me off to the "No Parking" sign that was hidden behind a potted plant.

The city had to know this was an issue too... come on, how freaking high up is that speed limit sign?

They had to know this was poor design if they knew the sign needed to be put that high...

At least the person putting the sign up had to know, and you would hope he would go back and tell his superiors about it.

How many city official does it take to move a sign?
