Overnight Parking Prohibition - 2:30 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. The City has had an overnight parking prohibition to address public safety concerns since 1927. Overnight parking is not permitted in single family residential areas or commercial zones. However, as the City's multiple family residential areas do not have sufficient off-street parking for residents and their guests, the City provides the following programs:
Overnight Parking Permits Qualifying residents in multiple-family units (apartments, condos, and duplexes) may purchase annual overnight parking permits. To qualify for permits residents must demonstrate a lack of off-street parking for their private vehicles.
Overnight Parking Exemptions Residents in multiple-family residential areas may obtain up to 13 monthly overnight parking exemptions per household through the City’s parking exemption call-in program or online.
Online Residents may receive overnight parking exemptions online between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 a.m. Please click here for more information on the overnight parking exemptions guidelines.
By Phone Residents may also receive overnight parking exemptions by calling (310) 285-2548 between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. We will request your name, address, and vehicle(s) license plate, make, model and color. The operator will issue a computer generated exemption code that must be written on an 8” X 11” white sheet of paper and displayed on the driver's side dashboard.
