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