The Cost of Parking

Hosted by

This Sunday is Easter: a day of chocolate, jellybeans, sunshine and one of the busiest days of the year for public parks. And in Orange County, parks officials have decided to charge higher parking rates on the holiday. Here in L.A., a similar move: this week, Mayor Eric Garcetti released his first budget. Part of his plan to bring in more revenue is to issue more parking tickets. Now in Los Angeles, two men are suing the city because they say parking tickets are unconstitutionally expensive.
