Los Angeles is the film capital. We’re proud of that. For many of us, its why we’re here. So, how is it that some lame producers and production managers can make us disdain the film industry by disregarding common courtesy towards residents in neighborhoods their shoots impact? Closing off streets with little or no notice, restricting street parking and offering residents no alternatives, setting up or shooting before and/or after the permitted periods, often keeping neighbors from being able to sleep? And when is the LAPD or Film LA ever going to enforce permits with more than a nasty phone call?
Pulling blindly into traffic, blowing past waiting passengers, and blocking intersections are but a few of the behaviors of asshole bus drivers. Let’s face it – anyone willing to take a job maneuvering an oversized vehicle throughout this city’s streets all day long must be a little nuts, but a not so rare breed are menaces to society, also known for cutting off bicyclists and tailgating passenger vehicles. Ralph Kramden would be ashamed.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
Poll closes Friday at noon.
