  • Broken car on street ticketed for no parking

    Hi,

    In Los Angeles, A car was parked on the street on the side that they were doing street cleaning. The car was not able to me moved do to the fact that it would not start. A mechanic was called, but he was not able to come before the car was ticketed.
    What is the law in such a case.

    Thank You

    It's a good ticket. Generally, the city (not L.A. specifically) will post signs or provide some other type of advisory when street department crews will be working.

      It's not the city's fault that the guy couldn't keep his car running. Also, the parking enforcement guys in L.A. are nuts. They even cite cop cars
      God made perfect cops.......The rest he put in cars.

        Yes LA parking enforcement guys are crazy, and somewhat lazy. They will ticket anything at anytime they please and you will never get them to drop it. But parking eforcement sure is nice to call in to block traffic for a t/c or somthing, keeps me from having to relight flares every 10 minutes.

          Those fools cited and towed my POV at USC hospital one day. I put my head up my *** and was wrong and admit it. I paid it with no problem and had a hook up at the tow co. give me the car back for free. I then got a parking ticket in the mail saying that my car had expired registration in a certain Boyle Heights neighborhood. That would be impossible because my registration was valid and my car was sitting in the impound yard 4 miles away at that time. I'm still waiting for my hearing date. This one is really BS. I'm gonna start citing all of them for those illegal Uturns to cite someone, impeding traffic, no seat belt.....the list goes on.

            i agree they are nuts.
            There was a note in the car saying that it was broken. What happened was that when the owner went out to move the car for street cleaning, it would not start. There was no time to do anything else.
            Also, as a side point, the ticket says the car was parked in front of a non existent address. If they wont remove the ticket due to the car being broken, is the fact that the address does not exist a able to get that ticket canceled?

            Thankx

              It takes an act of God to get LADOT to cancel a ticket. They are a bunch of fools that figure if they drag it along long enough, you will just pay it. If the address didn't exist, the cite will go to the hundred block. Like if you are cited in front of 1300 w. 7th st and it didn't exist, it will end up being the 1300 blk of w. 7th st.

                  Actually, you can blame San Diego PD for it. Around 20 years ago they had a Chief who was a really nice guy. If one of his people gave you a cite (moving or parking) all you had to do was go to his office, ask nicely and nine times out of 10 he would void it for you.

                  The press eventually got wind of this and under the public records act, asked to see all voided citations for the past few years. They found thousands of them. The resulting scandal caused the Legislature to pass a law saying only the court can void a cite once it was issued, effectively taking it out of the hands of the issuing agency.

                  Granted, if you can get to the cite before the department sends it to the court there is always the potential for a little disappearing act to take place. But in the case of LADOT, they have thousands of parking officer and each probably goes through several cite books a day. Trying to track down one cite out of thousands after its been issued is usually impossible.

                    Ditto to what everyone else said. Broken down or not, it is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the car is parked legally.
