How Often Does This Get Stolen?

Roadway warnings in the United States are almost always presented on yellowish diamond-shaped signs. They might convey information such as upcoming curves, steep grades, dangerous intersections, rock slide areas, deer crossing areas or various other things to watch out for as one drives along. I saw a rather unusual one as I was researching my recent article on Beverly Hills as I poking along the canyons in Google Street View.

"NO ACCESS TO THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN," it reads. I can imagine the poor residents of this area having to put up with visitors driving up their narrow roadway and then having to back all the way down again, probably dozens of times a day. It must have gotten so bad that they felt a road sign would provide the only relief. The visitors get so tantalizingly close, only to be thwarted in the quest.

If a visitor got that close though, only to be turned away at the last moment, what are the chances they might want to walk away with some small memento to mollify their frustration? It even looks like someone has been tugging at the bottom corner. I hope its bolted it on tightly.
