A while back Hertz banned us from renting their cars because of excessive parking tickets, no joke. We are fighting back by trying to help give visitors a clear view of the entire parking scene in a particular locale. We have put together our guide to parking in LA, and an accompanying map. On the map, we have plotted six LA public parking spots where we have had the most luck. Send along LA parking tips, tricks, and advice and comment here so other folks don't rack up steep parking fines, or worse yet, get towed.

We always thought a live human being had to issue you are parking ticket, however, Jaunted reader Maria, must be the exception that proves the rule.  Once you read her story you may realize the only way to visit LA and not get a parking ticket is to never get behind the wheel of a car.

Go ahead, you read her LAX $90 parking ticket story and try to make sense of the ticket.

Where To Park In LA: Don't Try To Park Overnight on the Streets of Beverly Hills

Think you can beat the Beverly Hills Parking Wenches? So did we. A couple weeks back, while staying at The Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills, we pulled onto Brighton Way just off of North Crescent Drive and spotted an open meter spot. As an added bonus we noticed the meter was $1.00 for one hour between 8 AM and 6 PM, the time just so happened to be a bit after 5 PM PST. Perfect, we can park here overnight, right? Wrong.

Even though there was absolutely no signage alerting us to overnight parking regulations, we were greeted with a $45.00 parking ticket when we arrived at our vehicle just before 8 AM the next morning. The reasoning? According to the City of Beverly Hills "Placard not displayed between 2:30 - 5:30". Of course, a stronger traveler might try to fight the ticket, but we are weak and weary, so we will just pay it, as soon as we can find the damn thing.

It's been a few weeks since we unleashed the first-ever Jaunted Parking Guide for Los Angeles. And in that time, we've received plenty of tips about where to park in this sprawling city. But we're sure you readers out there have a few more tricks up your sleeve. So if you've recently had a run-in with a West Coast parking wench or you managed to talk your way out of a ticket or if you've found a great, secret parking space let us know. In the meantime, avoid the parking lot across from Holly's in Hollywood on Wilcox as they are charging $20 for you to park your own car.

After we sent our baby, the Los Angeles parking guide, out into the published world yesterday, we received a tip about parking in Beverly Hills. It came straight from the Raffles L'Ermitage, a top Beverly Hills hotel and one object of our luxury travel lust.

It turns out that patrons of the hotel's bar or JAAN, its restaurant, don't have to pay for parking there. The restaurant is open all day. The Writer's Bar is open from 11 a.m. for liquid lunches, and is a famous hideaway for Hollywood types. Of course, the parking won't feel so free when you factor in an expensive cocktail, but the perk is worth noting.

Bonus: the L'Ermitage was supposedly Angelina Jolie's sex hotel of choice back when she had "lovers" and before she settled down with Brad. If only they could get her on parking wench duty there! We'd pay, like, $150 for a gin and tonic.

The city of Los Angeles is often referred to as Hell-A for several reasons--god awful traffic and soulless entertainment industry people are among the top few. But parking in this city is also rather hellacious and since everyone is driving in this town (thanks to greedy GM, among others), there's no way to avoid having to park your car. Sure many residents have figured out exactly where to park without incurring a hefty parking ticket (either that or they just keep an account with the city to pay their steep parking fines), but what about visitors, aka tourists. These folks usually rent cars, are almost always lost, and look terribly confused--where can they park?

That's why we have compiled our JAUNTED PARKING GUIDE: Los Angeles. In which, we take a look at three top tourist spots amongst LA's sprawling neighborhoods and then detail where to park. We also look at how to avoid parking tickets, how to pay your parking tickets and what your friendly neighborhood parking wench looks like. Hey, appearances matter in this town.
