Enforcement is ongoing for all the following categories:
- Metered parking

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.
