If you forgot to move your car before leaving town for the holidays, you might be in luck: NBC Los Angeles reports that the city won't be issuing tickets to vehicles parked illegally because of street cleaning.

The street cleaners themselves have the days following Christmas off, so rather than ticket cars even though they're not actually in anybody's way, the city is reportedly opting to forgo tickets for this particular offense altogether between December 26 and December 30. This is the first year this practice has been implemented.
