Depending on the neighborhood, LA can be a tough place to park. Popular destinations like the beach or heavily congested areas like downtown can present serious parking challenges. If you happen to be looking for parking early in the morning (before 7 a.m.), at night (after 6 p.m.), or anytime on Sunday, you can park in a yellow loading zone – for free! – without fear of getting a ticket. This works for Yellow and green loading zones – NOT WHITE!! The white zones are enforced 24 hours a day and are very limited in their time capacity (usually 3-5 minutes). Another caveat – this works for LA city parking. Double-check if you’re in one of the incorporated cities like Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, etc. May all your parking be ticket-free!
