If you want to come to a party on the street where I live and park illegally, be prepared to get a ticket.
I’ve called parking enforcement (which is 213-485-4184 in case you have a similar problem) and they said they’ll come over and take care of it.
I don’t know why I’m so territorial about parking in my neighborhood. I always have been and it’s not my nicest trait. But it just chaps my hide when folks park in front of the fire hydrants and opposite driveways (on this narrow street, it essentially blocks the driveway) where there are signs that say no parking on that side of the street. Sure, I wasn’t planning on going out tonight, but that doesn’t mean that you can park my car in. (In this instance they didn’t but it’s happened and boy howdy, you don’t wanna be around me when that happens.) I know I’m supposed to be a good neighbor and put up with the occasional party, dumpsters for large and lengthy renovation projects, loud music, barking dogs, revving engines that you seem to be endlessly tinkering with, catfights, etc. Sometimes folks just cross the line. And for me that line is about eight cars long.
UPDATE: As I was writing this a very nice officer showed up. He said he’s gonna make a pass now, and be back in an hour or so to make another pass.
