HIGHLAND PARK -- Jane Parshall had never heard of the Amgen Tour of California, the nation's largest bike race, until it was too late. On Sunday morning, Parshall discovered that her Volvo station wagon had been impounded because it had been parked on Piedmont Avenue, part of the route the elite cyclists took as they raced through on their way to the finish line in Pasadena. When Parshall went to claim her Volvo, she ran into many other Northeast L.A. residents whose vehicles had also been impounded for being left on the route.
