Improving Pedestrian Safety at Vermont Square Park

As part of Councilman Curren Price’s continuous efforts to make the streets of District 9 safer for the community, two brand new speed humps have been installed directly adjacent from Vermont Square Park on 47th Street between Budlong Avenue and Raymond Avenue, as well as on Budlong Avenue between 47th Street and 48th Street. 

The addition of these humps will slow down any potential speedy drivers thus calming traffic down and improving safety conditions for the neighborhood.

For more information on the Speed Hump program, please visit https://ladot.lacity.org/projects/safety-programs/speed-humps. If you need further assistance, contact Councilmember Curren Price's District Office at (323) 846-2651.

LADOT Launches Early Pay LA, Offering Payment Discounts for Parking Citations

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) has implemented an economic relief measure that will allow motorists an early payment discount on citations. The Early Pay LA program will award a $20 discount for the most common parking citations paid within 48 hours and remain in effect until June 30, 2021.

Launched on Nov. 2, the new early bird program rewards discounts for early payment on citations for residential street sweeping, overnight/oversize parking districts and vehicles displaying recently expired permits within preferential parking areas.

In addition to this new program, the City of Los Angeles has several other programs in place to assist low-income individuals and individuals experiencing homelessness with outstanding parking citation debt, as well as relief programs to allow for citation amnesty.

The department's existing programs to provide economic relief include:

  • The Community Assistance Parking Program (CAPP): LADOT offers the CAPP for individuals experiencing homelessness that allows them to pay their parking citations through volunteer community service or through enrollment in a homeless service program. 
  • Low-Income Payment Plans: LADOT worked with the state legislature to shape bills that created or modified payment plans for indigent and eligible low-income motorists. Depending on the existing payment plan, the City may waive all late fees for eligible motorists and allow up to 18 months to pay off the base citation fines.
  • The citation amnesty program grants a one-time opportunity for those with citations over three years old the chance to have all late fees waived and pay the base citation amount(s) over a period of time thereby clearing DMV holds, tax intercepts, and/or tow orders.
  • The unemployment citation amnesty program assists those who lost their job during the pandemic by allowing them to have late fees waived and pay only the base citation amount over a period of time. 

More details on LADOT’s citation relief programs are available on LADOT’s Parking Violations Bureau websiteFor more information about LADOT's COVID-19 response, please visit ladot.lacity.org/coronavirus
