The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced Wednesday that it will resume enforcing state and county parking ordinances next week following a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Enforcement of street sweeping parking restrictions, red tag violations for abandonment, and expired registration will return on April 1, according to Deputy Trina Schader of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

The Sheriff’s Department patrols 42 of the county’s cities, along with 130 unincorporated county areas, such as Altadena and East Pasadena.

“To avoid receiving a parking citation or having a vehicle towed, we urge drivers to be mindful of this change,” Schrader said in a written statement.

Cars parked in street sweeping zones during posted times will be cited, officials said.

Cars with expired registration will be cited, and those with delinquent registration for more than six months will be towed.

Anyone wishing to arrange a payment plan for fines can reach the Sheriff’s Department at (866) 561-9744, online at, or by mail at Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, P.O. Box 30629, Los Angeles, CA 90030-0629.
