All weekend (and into Monday morning), the Los Angeles City Department of Transportation warning sign at Coldwater Canyon Avenue and Hortense Street flashed:
"HEAVY FLAGGING AHEAD"
Except the L was dropped because the lightbulbs in that section of the sign were flickering out.
It was just at the entrance to Studio City. A reader, who asked to remain unidentified, wrote in:
"This offensive city sign has been flashing all weekend and it of course is an unfortunate mistake, but people I know are giggling about it, and it should be taken down immediately! It makes Studio City look silly once again."
A city DOT spokesperson said they are looking into the issue and will turn off the sign or fix it ASAP.
