Beware Travelers: Parking Tickets Gifted to Cars in the FlyAway Parking Lot

Before you

One LAist reader has a travel warning for you that could put a frown on your face once you return from the Thanksgiving holiday (or any trip from that matter). Here's what they had to say:

Parking enforcement officers are now patrolling around the FlyAway parking structures and giving parking citations (mostly for cars without front license plates). So when you come back from a nice, long vacation, you'll be greeted with a parking ticket on your windshield (like me!). I found out FlyAway is created and funded by Los Angeles World Airports which is basically run by the city. So yes, FlyAway parking structures are public parking lots. For some reason I thought it was privately run. My cost-effective method to get to the airport now became not-so-cost-effective. I probably could've parked at the LAX airport long-term parking, but maybe I'd get a ticket there too.
