Los Angeles City Council has directed the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to prioritize a process for citing and towing abandoned and oversized vehicles, as outlined in this inter-departmental memorandum. The council also directed LADOT to immediately resume parking enforcement for vehicles used as dwellings if they are in violation of any of the following categories:

  • Vehicles that pose a traffic safety hazard

  • Vehicles that pose a public health or environmental hazard

  • Vehicles that interfere with public works projects or special events

  • Inoperable vehicles

  • Unregistered vehicles

LADOT works with other city departments to initiate outreach and offer services to occupants of vehicles used for dwelling before a vehicle is towed.
