Nearly three years ago, the West Hollywood City Council adopted reforms to help make parking in the City more affordable, available and accessible.

This week, the Transportation Commission takes a step towards reducing one of the more reviled causes of parking tickets in the City: the requirement to curb wheels when parking on a hill.

Although the City has issued hundreds of tickets for failure to curb wheels, not once has one of these ticketed cars actually rolled down a hill.

At Wednesday’s Transportation Commission meeting, they will consider a Staff Report amending the municipal code to change the grade on a hill where the rule will be enforced from 6% to 7.5%.

That may not seem like much, but it will mean 16 streets and 187 parking spaces will no longer be covered by this superfluous regulation.

So here’s one for the little guy!
