Parking Enforcement Resumed Oct. 15

The LADOT Parking Enforcement and Traffic Control division has resumed parking enforcement as of Oct. 15. 

The department has resumed parking enforcement and impounding, where applicable, for the following categories:

  • Residential street sweeping 
  • Expired registration on a vehicle 
  • Overnight/oversize parking districts
  • Peak/rush hour and gridlock zone parking restrictions
  • Ticket/tow for abandoned vehicles (72 hour rule)
  • Vehicles displaying recently expired permits within preferential parking districts 

LADOT will delay impounding vehicles used for dwelling pending a report back to the city council in 30-60 days. Additionally, LADOT will delay the booting and impounding of scofflaw vehicles until Jan. 1, 2021.

Enforcement is ongoing for all the following categories:

  • Metered parking
  • Time limits within preferential parking districts for vehicles without a valid or recently-expired permit
  • Posted time limit zones in residential and commercial areas 
  • All posted temporary no-parking signs 
  • No blocking emergency access (alleyways, fire hydrants, etc.)
  • Colored curb zones
  • Parking restrictions for city-owned lots 

At the instruction of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, the department has also launched new economic relief measures to assist low-income Angelenos, including a new program that allows discounts for citation payments that are made early. This program supplements two other new programs created by the department to help Angelenos in need — the Citation Amnesty Program and the Unemployment Citation Amnesty Program — and joins the Community Assistance Parking Program (CAPP) and the Low-Income Payment Plans Program as part of LADOT’s larger effort to assist Angelenos.
