LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The Los Angeles Department of Transportation announced today it will continue not giving tickets for several parking offenses through at least Aug. 16 because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Tickets will not be issued for:
-- residential street sweeping;
-- expired vehicle registration;
-- overnight and oversize parking districts;
-- rush hour and gridlock zone parking restrictions; and
-- abandoned vehicles.
Fines will not be increased for failure to pay. The grace period will be extended for people dropping off and picking up passengers. The deadlines for all payments will be extended, the department announced.
The department will supply a temporary, print-at-home permit to residents inside preferential parking districts who have renewed their permit but have not received new hang-tags before their current permit expires.
Enforcement will continue for:
-- metered parking;
-- time limits inside preferential parking districts for vehicles without a permit;
-- posted time limit zones in residential and commercial areas;
-- posted temporary ``No Parking'' zones;
-- vehicles blocking emergency access, including alleyways and fire hydrants;
-- colored curb zones; and
-- parking restrictions for city-owned lots.
