Return "Parkway/Apron" Parking to Los Angeles

L.A. has a severe shortage of parking. Apron parking is a fair option to maximize parking in a limited area.

Dear Representatives:

I am emailing to urge you to make local ordinance and policy changes to the Los Angeles Municipal Code and California Vehicle Code that will allow residents of Los Angeles to park (in compliance with the ADA) in their parkways.

Other cities in California have implemented ordinance changes that allow their residents to go through a permit application process for permission to park in their aprons and block their driveway. These ordinances are in compliance with California Vehicle Code and the Americans with Disabilities Act. We strongly believe that our city deserves and needs a similar ordinance change.

We have more cars without private parking than there are available street parking spots. The City needs to implement solutions to our parking problems, not contribute to them. Recently the city stopped allowing residents to park in their parkways and because of this, the City has directly impacted our parking shortage in a traumatic way.

Many residents in Los Angeles have been parking in parkways for decades without blocking the sidewalk or traffic, without violating any ADA regulations. These residents and others should be allowed to continue to park in the same setting. This is the fairest and best solution to help immediately alleviate some of our parking problems.

Sincerely,
