When Mayor Garcetti first issued the safer-at-home order, he said the city wouldn’t ticket cars in residential neighborhoods that require alternate parking on street sweeping days.

“We still were sweeping the streets, but we weren't going to ticket you simply because you couldn't move a car," he said, "because you needed to be home."

The city is also holding off on ticketing and towing vehicles that are abandoned, oversized, or have expired registration or parking permits.

All of these temporary moratoriums on parking enforcement were supposed to end yesterday, but will now be extended to June 1.

Some regular parking tickets will still be issued, but the mayor said the city is prioritizing tickets for parked cars that are blocking emergency services or curbside pickup zones for newly reopened businesses.
