Addressing the concerns of homeowners, the Los Angeles City Council has approved new temporary rules governing the use of vehicles for dwelling on city streets.
The amendment to Municipal Code 85.02 allows for fines to be issued to persons dwelling in vehicles on residential streets and within one block (500 feet) of parks and licensed schools, preschools and day care facilities between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
The amendment is scheduled to expire on July 1, 2018, when the city is expected to replace it with more comprehensive solutions to the homelessness crisis using funds generated by tax measures recently approved by voters.
In the meantime, the city has created a series of maps to help identify non-residential streets where dwelling in a vehicle is permitted.
