When I lived in West Hollywood and Long Bch, the ticket nazi traveled in tandem with the street sweeper in order to immediately ticket the car. Once I saw that the sweeper had passed, yet still within the time range on the warning sign, I would park my car there since I saw that the "coast was clear".
Now that I live in Woodland Hills, I've noticed that there is no ticket nazi in tandem with the sweeper. My roommate says that they will still give tickets if a car is parked on the street sweeping side of the street within the hours posted on the sign, EVEN IF the street sweeper has already gone by.
Anybody have experience with this?

I wouldn't doubt it..I mean I see the point of giving a ticket if there is a posted sign.

I used to live in Hollywood and they 'ticket nazis' were pretty aggressive...but the part of the valley I live in now they don't even have street sweeping at all...kind of sucks.

Yes this happened to me. I complain about it but understand it is my fault for parking there in the "No Parking" time. What if they wanted to do other street improvements after the sweeper went by.

Oh but soon after this happened they turned Yucca Street into a bicycle-friendly way with tons of improvements, so I just thought on the bright side and pretended like my ticket money went towards those street improvements - and who knows, maybe it did.

It's mostly a way to fill the coffers, but don't complain too much about getting a ticket when you violate posted signs.

I don't think there's as much money to be made in the valley because more ppl have driveways and don't have to use the streets like more densely populated areas. The street sweeping is between 12 noon and 3 pm, when most ppl are working. In west Hollywood, it was 8-12 and LB was 4-8 am, presumably when more cars were on the streets for overnight parking.

If they reasonably use the money, clean the streets and do at a reasonable hour when I'm awake, I actually don't mind
