LA County Relaxes Parking Tickets. LA City? Not So Much.
Remember when the Stay-At-Home order went back into effect times three?
Well, in response to asking people to stay home amid the current surge in cornavirus cases, L.A. County is now suspending some parking tickets.
Violations for street sweeping and expired registration will NOT be enforced in unincorporated areas of the county. If you're like, unincorporated what?, that is a reasonable question for which we have an answer.
Anyway, the Sheriff's department didn't say how long the relaxed enforcement would last, but Tweeted that they won't be handing out fines, at least in the short term.

The city of L.A., however, began ticketing again for parking violations in October.
Mayor Garcetti did launch a program to give people a $20 discount on some parking tickets, if they pay within 48 hours. But, let us be the first to say, a $20 discount on a $73 street sweeping ticket still means you're paying $53.
Judging these responses, you're not thrilled about it either.
So...what do ya'll think about the city still giving street sweeping tickets?— LAist (@LAist) December 10, 2020
