Parking Enforcement Officers Cannot Park in a Red Zone While Going to Lunch

But they sometimes do it anyway. Seen here on Spring Street in downtown last week, two parking enforcement officers sharing a car parked 18 or so inches into a red zone while they took a lunch break. Every employee deserves a mid-shift break, but does it include parking the way you want to? If any regular citizen had parked like that, it's likely a ticket would have been handed out. Curious to see if this was allowed or not, LAist contacted the L.A. Department of Transportation.
