Los Angeles officials have long ignored cars that park on the narrow bits of land between the curb and sidewalk, however that may change.
Many drivers in congested areas discovered they can park on these pieces of land without being ticketed.
However to prevent this, residents in Westlake, East Hollywood and other neighborhoods have planted saplings, installed poles, fences and other barriers to stop the destruction of the grass.
The city's transportation committee approved a draft of a new law that would make it illegal to stop, stand or park in those narrow bits of land.
If the draft is approved, the tickets that should have always been dealt will resume mid-August.
