Why do many parking lots in downtown LA use retractable tire spikes as access control devices?

I’m currently on a road trip to LA to see a show. Trying to find parking in downtown LA is quite the challenge. And it’s made much worse when I saw a sign saying “Warning: Do not back up – severe tire damage” as I attempted to worm my way out of a full parking […]
