Just when you thought it was safe to park on the streets of Los Angeles, the City announced mid-October they were going back to business as usual, sending a frightening chill down the backs of wallets everywhere.

In a commendable action, LADOT looked past its astonishing ability to meet quotas that can easily raise them up to $1.4 Billion a year simply by easing up what many felt were “shark-like tactics”.
But, as of Oct 22nd, the horror continued like a bad sequel we all have to watch out for, entitled, “When meter maids attack! Part 2”.
