Neighbors say law enforcement fail to enforce existing traffic laws, and tourists frequently disregard posted signs.

Open-air tour vans also add to congestion in the area.

The group Hollywood Sign Neighbor United was formed to advocate for residents in the area.

They're asking for existing laws to be enforced and want agencies to coordinate.

The Hollywood sign was erected in 1923 as an advertisement for a real estate development.
