Most drivers roar right by the red and white signs on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, but Pat Veesart slows down and calls them out one by one. "Almost guaranteed it's not a legitimate sign," says Veesart, a baseball cap pushed back on his head as he steers his rust-spotted Jeep down the highway. Veesart has a skilled eye for spotting suspicious "No Parking" signs. Take the bent metal sign propped up against a chain-link fence at Latigo Shore Drive, whose faded red lettering screams: "NO PARKING ANY TIME TOW AWAY.

SAN FRANCISCO - For decades, surfers, smelt fishermen and picnickers flocked to Martin's Beach - a crescent-shaped haven south of Half Moon Bay, backed by stunning cliffs. They paid a small entry fee to the family that ran the property for a century, and their good times were memorialized in bucolic postcards. Then in 2008 a new owner came along and barred the gate, spurring protests and a spate of litigation. That battle intensified Tuesday when a suit was filed on behalf of the Surfrider Foundation, alleging that the limited liability companies that own the land - with a Silicon Valley billionaire behind them - are in violation of the California Coastal Act. Helping to litigate the case is former Republican Rep. Pete McCloskey.
