Watch where you leave your car during the closure of the 405 Freeway this weekend -- if it's along certain parts of Ventura or Sepulveda Blvds., you'll risk being towed, reports CBS2. The decision by the city to limit parking around the freeway's closed areas is an attempt to move traffic along major thoroughfares that will likely be used by those poor souls who still have to maneuver their way through the Westside during Carmageddon. “Tow Away, No Stopping Anytime” signs will go up warning drivers of the restrictions, which will begin promptly at 12:01 a.m. on July 16, notes CBS2.

According to the blog CD2 Emergency Information, which provides news updates that concern City District 2, the following areas will be off-limits for parking:

  • The south side of Ventura Boulevard, between Balboa Boulebard and Sherman Oaks Avenue;
  • The north side of Ventura Boulevard, between Noble Avenue and Sepulveda Boulevard;Both sides of Sepulveda Boulevard, between Greenleaf Street and Valley Vista Boulevard;
  • The west side of Sepulveda Boulevard, between Valley Vista Boulevard and the 405 Freeway;
  • The east side of Sepulveda Boulevard, between Moraga Drive and Ovada Place.
