Apron Parking's Officially Out

New, 9 comments

Westwood's North Village marks the end of a carefree, car-laden era today as officials begin ticketing apron parking, notes the Daily Bruin. The practice--cars parked in alleys and driveways that jut out into the streets and sidewalks-- has always been illegal, but enforcement was previously based on complaints only. The switch to blanket enforcement was precipitated by disabled pedestrians who found the sidewalks too difficult to navigate with cars apron-parked willy nilly in the area. The new enforcement policy was delayed until now to give car-dependent UCLA students a small reprieve. Says one student: "I originally planned to bring my car to school next year, but now I don't think it'll be possible." [Daily Bruin]
