Garcetti Extends Relaxation of Parking Restrictions to October 1

Parking enforcement relaxation has been extended again…to October 1.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, and the Safer at Home and Safer LA restrictions resulting in more people spending more time at home these days, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti has once again extended relaxed parking enforcement across the city…with a new expiration date of October 1.

“Angelenos shouldn’t be penalized for staying home, avoiding unnecessary trips, and doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19,” said Garcetti in a statement released yesterday. “All of us have a role to play in defeating this virus and saving lives, and no one should worry about facing extra financial burdens when they’re keeping their family, friends, and community safe during this crisis.”

Between now and October 1, relaxation remains in effect – and people WILL NOT be ticketed – for:

  • Residential street sweeping
  • Expired registration
  • Overnight/Oversize parking districts
  • Peak/rush hour and gridlock zone parking restrictions
  • Ticket/tow for oversized/overnight parking

However, enforcement and ticketing WILL continue for:

  • Metered parking
  • Time limits within preferential parking districts for vehicles without a valid or recently-expired permit
  • Posted time limit zones in residential and commercial areas
  • All posted Temporary No-Parking signs
  • Blocking emergency access areas
  • Colored curb zones
  • Parking restrictions for City-owned lots

Also, according to the statement, “Angelenos will not face parking fine increases when failing to pay a ticket. Residents will also be given extended grace periods for residential and commercial drop off or pick up; granted extensions on all deadlines for payments; and offered temporary permits that can be printed at home for those who have renewed their permit but will not receive the new hangtag before their current permit expires.”

And, finally, “Vehicles displaying recently expired permits within preferential parking districts will have a two-week grace period following the expiration to renew. On October 1, parking enforcement will begin again, with the exception of street sweeping enforcement, which will resume at a later date.”
