Parking Rules: What is Relaxed and What is Enforced?

Parking Enforcement

In accordance with the direction of Mayor Garcetti and city leaders, LADOT announced changes to parking enforcement policies to help Angelenos comply with public health recommendations and prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus. LADOT continues to modify parking regulations as needed to assist residents as they cope with this public health emergency.

LADOT has RELAXED enforcement for the following categories:

  • Residential street sweeping
  • Expired registration on a vehicle
  • Peak/rush hour and gridlock zone parking restrictions
  • No ticket/tow for abandoned vehicles and overnight parking
  • Vehicles displaying recently expired permits within preferential parking districts will have a two-week grace period following the expiration to renew
  • In addition:

  • No parking fine increases until after June 1
  • Extended grace period for people dropping off or picking up
  • Immediate extensions on all deadlines for payments until June 1
  • LADOT will supply a temporary, print-at-home permit to residents within a preferential parking district who have renewed their permit but will not receive the new hangtag before their current permit expires
  • Enforcement CONTINUES for:

  • Metered parking
  • Time limits within preferential parking districts for vehicles without a valid or recently-expired permit
  • Posted time limits 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

These changes will remain in effect until May 15, 2020 and are subject to extension.
