Can I Get a Car Towed if It is Blocking My Driveway in Los Angeles? Yes!

As we have reported previously, some of the most popular posts on the Melrose Village Blog, nearly every week, are about what to do if a car is blocking your driveway.

The answer is: Get it towed right away.

As a public service, once again, here is how you do it:

Blocking someone’s driveway is not just rude, it’s illegal. If it happens to you, you can get the car towed. Just call L.A. Parking Enforcement at (213) 485-4184. When the recorded message starts, press 2 to reach a live operator.

We have found that Parking Enforcement is very prompt and effective. (Perhaps because they generate revenue for the City, which is very much needed, especially these days.) On the occasions we have called to get a car towed, Parking Enforcement officers have arrived in less than an hour.

If you don’t want to have the car towed, but you do want the offending parker to know that they should not have blocked your driveway, you can ask that the car be given a ticket.

You don’t need to be there for Parking Enforcement to give out just a ticket. But you do need to be present to get a car towed, so that you can show you are a resident, and that your driveway is being blocked. A city operator will call you when the Parking Enforcement officer has arrived and will ask you to go outside and confirm the car that is blocking your driveway.

We are sometimes asked if we have any qualms about getting someone’s car towed. The answer is No, Not At All. That obnoxious parker is preventing people from getting to work, a meeting, or an appointment. And what if there were an emergency, but you could not even get out of your own driveway?

If a car is blocking any part of your driveway, get it towed – immediately!

    There are multiple reasons of the car owner to park in an erroneous method but it is none of your headaches. You just want a vehicle tow and clear the route of yours.
