LOS ANGELES (CNS) — The Los Angeles Department of Transportation is reminding residents of a newly implemented Installment Payment Plan that allows qualified motorists to pay for their parking citations over a three-month period.

Those whose financial situation is confirmed as a “very low-income” household can do so by using guidelines established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

LADOT said that IPPs do not cancel parking fines, but allow for a first installment of 40 percent, followed by two installments of 30 percent of the total.

The new program also no longer requires motorists to go through a hearing to get on an installment plan. They can simply request the plan after receiving a citation.
