The Parking Permits Division implements permit parking programs for the City of Los Angeles, including Preferential Parking Districts, Overnight Parking Districts, and Oversize Vehicle Restricted Areas as approved and directed by the City Council.
The Los Angeles City Council designates certain parts of the city as parking districts. Preferential Parking Districts (PPD) and Overnight Parking Districts will be designated with signs. To park there without risk of a parking citation, you must have a valid parking permit. All other state and municipal parking laws remain in effect in parking districts.
