LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tear down the Hollywood sign! That's what a gag-flier says, but it reflects the mood of many who live near the landmark. Signs are going up in the upscale area reading "Warning - Tourist-Free Zone" and "Tourists Go Away." The Los Angeles Times reports people in the area contend the curving, narrow roads can't handle the increasing tourist traffic and pose a safety threat. Residents are also irked by the growth of sightseeing bus traffic and tourists taking parking spots.
