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