Vehicle Blocking Food Trucks on Wilshire Racks up $800 in Parking Tickets

Each morning around 9 a.m., once anti-gridlock zone parking restrictions are lifted, food trucks and Museum Square workers are said to jockey for spaces along 5700 Wilshire.

A vehicle apparently used to block food trucks from parking on the 5700 block Wilshire Boulevard has garnered $800 worth of parking ticket fines over the last month, according to city documents. As of this afternoon, none were paid.

Of the 11 tickets listed, most of them are for parking at an expired meter. Two, however, are for parking in an anti grid lock zone, which costs $150 per ticket. An additional unpaid ticket stemmed from a parking violation in the Valley from January.
