Los Angles, CA community news( parking~ must read):
**City is proposing a $5.00
pay hike in parking tickets.
**Soon citywide, already in some parts of LA(
as Silverlake) the meters will go back to 0 time when a car leaves.
**They are introducing technology in certain areas, that
will apprise the humorLESS parking patrol when a meter has expired, so,
they can run over and ticket you( !!!!!!!).
**If your car is still in
place and if you used a credit or debit card to pay, it will
charge your card, so ,they city will not even
have to employ any parking patrols!
Did you know that LA meters generate $1 to 1.5 million each year?!
