What's free to hybrid drivers costs the city $300,000 annually. With the budget taking a dive into the red, the LA City Council today voted to end free parking at meters for hybrids beginning in March. "Hybrid vehicle owners who park at meters during the month of February will be given written notices about the end of free parking," notes NBC.
