The proposal has been making its way through the city for months, and the new signage will be unveiled Friday.
So far, Krekorian said he's heard positive feedback from L.A. drivers who had been puzzled by the existing stacks of restrictive signs. When a driver who thought they could legally park in a space gets a ticket for misunderstanding the sign, Krekorian said it's natural to react with anger.
"It really does cause a great deal of confusion," he said.
Signs with a better design should lead to fewer parking tickets, as well as fewer headaches for drivers, he added.
"It's a simple matter of fairness," Krekorian said.
