The end of free-after-6 parking

It didn't take long for the City of Los Angeles to start instituting those higher parking-meter fees and longer hours of operation.

I snapped this shot of one of the new signs with my cell phone camera on Thursday in Westwood Village [see inset], where metered parking used to be free daily until 10 a.m.

Not that any municipality would intentionally try to make parking ridiculously complicated, but ... it might take a minute or two to decipher what the new terms mean, and to figure how not to get ticketed.
