Los Angeles Times staff writer Laura Davis snapped a photo that recently went red hot on Reddit. Perhaps because it seems so L.A.?  The photo shows a sign for “1 Minute Parking.”

The parking sign in Brentwood set off both groans and laughter in L.A., a city that has received its share of criticism over hefty parking meter fees and even heftier fines.

The photo has made its way around the Internet all week.
