Free Park, If Meter Broken

If parking meter is broken, it is a free park. The Los Angeles City Council voted 13-0 July 31 to stop ticketing vehicles parked at broken meters.

The change takes effect immediately, said David Graham Caso, spokesman for Councilman Mike Bonin, who introduced the motion.

Los Angeles’  metered spaces are now electronic and they don’t stay broken for long. Coin meters were replaced last year.

When an electronic meter breaks, it alerts a computer and calls a technician to fix the machine — typically in about four hours, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.
