The Los Angeles Department of Transportation has announced that parking enforcement will resume next month.
KTLA reports that after a months-long pause, parking enforcement all across the county will resume July 6. Parking enforcement in Los Angeles was put on pause after residents were asked to stay at home to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Los Angeles ordered the relaxed parking regulations back in March, and has extended the grace period several times to accommodate the changing number in cases.
With the return of strict parking enforcement, you may be wondering if some relaxed enforcement may stay. Here is what KTLA reports is happening:
- Drivers will get tickets for parking during residential street sweeping and in rush hour, anti-gridlock zones and loading zones, or for having an expired registration, according to the L.A. Department of Transportation.
- “No Overnight/Oversized Vehicle” parking zone rules are relaxed
- Vehicles with recently expired preferential parking permits will not be cited
- The payment due date for existing citations will be extended until Aug. 1
- Late payment penalties on existing citations will be delayed until Aug. 1
- Those who can prove they are unemployed can have late penalties waived if they pay the base citation by the end of 2020.
According to LADOT, all other parking rules will continue to be enforced as they have been throughout the stay-at-home order. That includes metered parking and for blocking emergency access, officials said.
