No Need To Feed Your Parking Meter Today In The City Of L.A.
Christopher Columbus Day might be a questionable holiday at best, but there is one upside for Angelenos—free parking! At least in the City of Los Angeles, and in designated spaces.
In honor of the national holiday, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation will not be enforcing the following parking regulations, unless specifically posted otherwise:
- Time limit
- Parking meters
- No parking with specified days and times only
- No stopping with specified days and times only
- Preferential parking districts
- Street sweeping
Still, you should check street signs to see if they include holidays in the restrictions.
Red, white, blue and yellow zones will still be enforced. West Hollywood and Santa Monica will also not be enforcing parking regulations today, though we're not sure about Beverly Hills.
