For two weeks now the green lamposts that line one side of the southbound Arroyo Seco Parkway through Elysian Park have been burning bright, day and night. Why? Because taggers spray painted over the sensors that turn the lights on and off, reports the L.A. Times. The Times explained what happened:
A tagger got into the locked catwalk along the freeway and spray-painted over the photovoltaic cells that normally turn the lights on at dusk and off with the rising sun. As far as the lights know its perpetual midnight along that short, bucolic strip where the southbound Arroyo Seco Parkway arcs over the tunnels into downtown.
The spray paint is expected to be cleaned up soon.
