Los Angeles, California – The Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) reported that fines for parking on the streets of the city will be applied again after the temporary suspension due to the coronavirus.
The fines will be given from Thursday, October 15, in the following cases:
- Sweeping residential streets.
- Expired registration on a vehicle.
- Overnight parking and parking for large vehicles in restricted areas.
- Peak hour parking restrictions.
- Ticket and towing for abandoned vehicles (72-hour rule).
- Vehicles with recently expired permits within preferential parking districts.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti also approved a financial aid project for Angelenos in need, including a new prepayment program that will reward with discounts on citations, according to the LADOT statement.
The program that will begin on November 2, 2020, will allow motorists a discount for prepayment. The so-called Early Pay LA will grant a discount of $ 20 for citations paid within 48 hours.
In addition, people who lost their jobs due to the coronavirus and who have low income can also receive benefits to pay their fines. For more information, you can visit the LADOT page.
