Los Angeles’s New Map for Overnight

If you live in your car or have to sleep in your car overnight, you need to know about the new rules for where this is legal. Restrictions have been placed to keep you away from parks, schools and day cars. (Apparently the LA City council thinks you are all child molesters ?)

Do you see all of the RED lines, you can’t park there: anytime.

The YELLOW lines are okay for daytime parking.

The GREEN zones are okay overnight.

Except, and here is where it gets nasty, this map does not account for local ordanances and what the actual street signs say. The map has some green lines that I know good and well are “no overnight parking” spots. Trust me, I have had the Parking Boot of shame on my car – I am a parking ticket expert.

Good luck guys.
