The problem is looking for a Los Angeles law. This is one of the few parking areas which is governed by State law. It is illegal to stop or park within 15 feet of a fire hydrant. (Veh. Code sec. 22514.) A local authority can adopt an ordinance reducing that, but to my knowledge Los Angeles has not done so.
it's probably a safety thingit might be thinking ur car is being jacked, or it could just be a cross in the wires somewhere. ask an electrician :)
