As seen in this Hearing Examiner Report/Notice of Decision, the City is taking no responsibility for anything other than the revenue it can generate by ticketing and/or towing everyone they can. Despite the fact that the no parking sign was obstructed from view and a LAMC section stating that the sign must be visible, otherwise there cannot be a violation issued, the City upheld the ticket in the amount of $88. This does not include the towing fee incurred. This was a $300 expense all-in, not to mention the time, tears and anger this invoked. The tow truck operator even told my friend that this specific area where she parked is a major cash generator for the City. They tow cars there all the time. It’s just across the street from an elementary school. There is nothing like towing a parent’s car when they’re picking up their child from school. Such a cruel joke. Shame on you, City.
