Received a parking citation # 617089885 gridlock violation

West Hollywood, CA |

parking enforcement was standing in a corner in blue shirt, snapping photo's of automobile. Traffic was backed up when I was on a green light no one was moving forward. light turned yellow and red. Is this legal practice ?

  1. It certainly is questionable. Take pictures of intersection. Fight the ticket with attorney. This has nothing to do with parking. Every street in Los Angeles has gridlock.

  2. To answer your question, it would be necessary to know the Vehicle Code section written on the ticket. Was it VC 22500, parking in an intersection?

    It sees like necessity is something of a defense. You obviously cannot drive your car up into the sky or underground at will to avoid "parking."
