L.A. County Suspends Street-Sweeping Parking Tickets


The Los Angeles Times reports that Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will temporarily stop enforcing street-sweeping parking restrictions.

This parking-enforcement relaxation follows new stay-at-home orders, where residents are urged to stay in amid an unprecedented coronavirus surge. The department’s decision applies to unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County, the Los Angeles Times adds.

Along with street sweeping, L.A. County officials announced that vehicles with expired registration also will not be cited for the time being. Additionally, Los Angeles County will continue to enforce the following violations:

  • blocking fire hydrants
  • parking in a red zone
  • fire lane or improperly in a handicap space
  • blocking driveways or parking in a way that disrupts traffic
  • metered parking in business districts
