Well, mostly.

Memorial Day is a national holiday, so the City of Los Angeles is backing off on most parking enforcement. The Los Angeles Department of Transportation outlines easements on the following parking restrictions for Memorial Day:

  • Time Limit
  • Parking Meters
  • No Parking with specified days and times only
  • No stopping with specified days and times only
  • Preferential parking districts
  • Street sweeping

Some parking rules will still be enforced. Devon Farhan of LADOT told the L.A. Daily News that "any parking rule that is meant to keep people safe" and "restricted red zones, white loading zones and blue handicap zones" will still be enforced.

You know what that means, friends: time to blast Carly Rae Jepsen and crack open a cold one with the boys without worrying about a parking ticket if you stay in a metered spot for longer than two hours. It's Memorial Day, and summer has started.
