LADOT will continue to allow relaxed enforcement for:

People who can document that they are unemployed are eligible to have late penalties waived if they pay the base citation by the end of the 2020 calendar year.

People who want to fill out an "unemployment waiver'' can contact LADOT's customer care hotline at 866-561-9742.

People who have experienced financial hardship are eligible for a payment plan and can contact LADOT at the same number.

All other parking enforcement categories will continue to be enforced as they have been throughout the Safer at Home order. These categories include:

  • Metered parking
  • Time limits within preferential parking districts for vehicles without a valid or recently expired permit
  • Posted time limits in residential and commercial areas
  • All posted temporary "No Parking" signs
  • Vehicles that block emergency access, such as alleyways and fire hydrants
  • Colored curb zones
  • Parking restrictions for city-owned lots.

In addition, LADOT will continue to provide free temporary pick-up zone parking signs for eligible retail and food service providers. Businesses can apply for a pick-up zone on the LADOT website,
