Jesus Pimentel is hoping to do what many Angelenos who have faced parking citations likely have dreamed about: take the city to court.
The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to rescind a policy that allows the city to ticket people for parking at broken parking meters.
Critics fear the vote to raise parking fines as high as $93 could disproportionately impact lower-income residents of high-density neighborhoods.
Next time you park your car anywhere in Los Angeles, make sure you carry some change to feed the meter or you could end up coughing up big bucks.
A new bill could make sure you don’t come back to a ticket after you leave your car parked at a busted meter without putting in change.
