Streets aren’t cleaned but we still get parking tickets. Why?

To the editor: Because the pandemic, streets in my neighborhood are now not swept each week. As an alternative they’re swept twice per thirty days, on an everyday schedule made obtainable to residents, which is ok. (“These are the elements of L.A. that get essentially the most parking tickets. Our information to avoiding them,” Sept. 2)

Nonetheless, in accordance with a Los Angeles 311 operator I spoke to lately, we are able to nonetheless get a ticket if we’re parked on the incorrect facet of the road in the course of the posted street-cleaning time, even when no cleansing is scheduled that week.

After I requested why tickets can be written if there’s no true violation, I used to be instructed that two totally different metropolis departments are concerned: The Bureau of Road Companies cleans, and the Division of Transportation enforces parking guidelines.

So they can’t coordinate their schedules and guarantee us that no wrongly issued tickets will probably be written. Actually?

Please ask why the town’s Division of Transportation doesn’t coordinate with the town’s Bureau of Road Companies to keep away from giving tickets to residents who are usually not blocking sweepers.

To the editor: I knew a fellow who instructed me he’d run up in extra of $10,000 in parking tickets. After they caught up with him, he mentioned he settled all of it for about $3,000.

He was a lawyer and will have simply paid all of it. I’m nonetheless outraged.
