How to Park for Free in Los Angeles

Clean Air Vehicle DecalLos Angeles is amending its rule on free parking for hybrids inside the city. The City Council voted to change the law so that only those hybrid cars with the California "Clean-Air Vehicle" decal may continue to park for free.

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) started the free parking program three years ago and has never restricted the privilege to those with the decals before. The decal was created to mark those cars who are allowed solo driver access in the carpool lanes. All 85,000 stickers have been assigned, so unless you buy a car with the decal already on it, you can't get one. It has been estimated that hybrid cars with decals can go for $4,000 more according to Kelley Blue Book.

Free parking for hybrid cars with the decal runs through December 31, 2010. LADOT estimates the cost to the city runs at over one hundred thousand dollars, or about one half of a percent of the total annual meter revenue.
