Dear Los Angeles: Your Parking Holiday Is Coming To An End
We all knew it wouldn't last forever: The parking holiday is about to end in the city of Los Angeles.
The city put a hold on most parking enforcement when the pandemic began, to make it easier for Angelenos to stay home whenever possible.
But today, the City Council voted to resume normal enforcement on October 15. That means tickets for things like:
- street cleaning
- abandoned vehicles
- oversize and overnight restrictions
- peak-hour and anti-gridlock zones
- expired tags
Before the pandemic, L.A.'s Department of Transportation projected parking citation revenue to reach about $135 million in this fiscal year. Now, transportation officials expect that revenue to plummet to just $55 to $60 million.
