The stay-at-home order issued in early 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic brought to light the need
for additional parking and a new way to address parking enforcement across Los Angeles County. Understanding
the needs and challenges of those in the communities we serve, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department

In the face of new challenges to prepare for inclement winter weather, parking enforcement will resume issuing
citations for all parking violations within the public right of way. Beginning Sunday, November 15, 2020, the Los
Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Parking Enforcement Detail will again issue street sweeping and expired
registration citations, as well as, towing vehicles in the areas we serve across Los Angeles County. To avoid
receiving a parking citation or having a vehicle towed, we urge drivers to be mindful of this change.
Resumed enforcement will include:
- Street sweeping: All streets with posted signs for street sweeping will be enforced, per 15.20.070(2) LACVC
- Expired registration: Vehicles with expired registration will be cited for 4000(a)(1)CVC; registrations
expired in excess of six months, in violation of 4000(a)(1) CVC, will be towed, per 22651 (o)(1)(A) CVC
- Red tag warnings: Red tag warnings will be issued to vehicles parked on the street not displaying signs of
movement, including excessive dirt, debris underneath and around the tires, flat tires, missing parts, and
vandalism. If the vehicle has not been moved after 72 hours or three days, a citation for Abandonment
Prohibited – 22523(a)(b) CVC will be issued and an additional 48 hours or two days will be given. If the
vehicle still has not been moved, it will be towed, per 22651(k) CVC.
