Take action: support AB 1685 forgiving parking tickets for unhoused people
- Even before the pandemic, there are about 11,124 vehicles that are also homes for unhoused Angelenos. These vehicles often accumulate parking tickets issued by cities. Unhoused people living in vehicles have a hard time void these fines, which they cannot afford to pay. AB 1685 will help by forgiving up to $1,500 annually in parking fines and fees for unhoused people.This gives unhoused people some financial relief to focus on meeting their basic needs and planning their path to becoming housed. Join AHLA in support of AB 1685 by sending a letter to your legislators today!
