Since when do LA billboards go over streets? That's a shopped freeway entrance sign.

I suggest thermal foggers loaded with Strawberry Cough on every street corner.

How do you spraypaint an elevated garden?

The gangbangers will never go for this.

Let's not jump the gun here. People in LA would first have to be able to drive before we can started calling them drivers.

Yeah, it's just a proposal at the moment, and he's still trying to work out the logistics like watering. The original in-article photo-caption notes it's a hypothetical example.

LA drivers sit in traffic better than any drivers anywhere.

Oh, but they will if you talk to them about it right! You simply explain to them that if one is calm, cool and collected, one becomes a much better shot.

Come to Toronto where people aren't afraid to merge. In fact, they do it with reckless abandon.

Residual fear from the 80s, when there was a chance that getting on the freeway could lead to you getting shot. Of course, in the 80s a lot of things could lead to getting shot in LA - gang wars were in full force and there were plenty of stray bullets flying around.

I hearing Edwin Starr ...

Art, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
Art, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'all
Art, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me
Ohhh, Public Art, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives
Artists mean tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to create
And lose their lives
I said, Art, huh
Good God, y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
Art, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me
Art, it ain't nothing
But a heartbreaker
Art, friend only to the undertaker
Ooooh, Public Art
It's an enemy to all mankind
The point of such art blows my mind
Art has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Finger painting then destruction
Who wants to die
Aaaaah, Art-huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it
Art, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me
Art, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
Art, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y'all
Art, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me
Art, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
Art, it's got one friend
That's the undertaker
Ooooh, Art, has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is too short and precious
To spend publicly financing art these days
Public Art can't give life
It can only take it away
Ooooh, Art, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
Art, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Art, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it
Nothing
