Street Talk: Parking Tickets in LA

Everyone hates getting parking tickets, but parking tickets serve as an important tool to:

  • Keep parking spots available in front of local businesses.
    Protect the environment and the public’s health by allowing street sweepers to clean our streets.
  • Ensure first responders have access to fire hydrants and fire lanes in the case of an emergency.
  • Help make sure Angelenos can find parking spots near their homes.

But, the City of Los Angeles also has a responsibility to make sure parking tickets are fair and reasonable. How can we best make sure parking tickets and parking fines be fair and reasonable?

It begins with understanding the data.
