In the Westlake area of LA, there's a section of James M. Wood, roughly between Hoover and Alvarado, that has completely unrestricted street parking. They don't sweep the street. Ever. So what happens is that a **** ton of garbage and other gross things pile up along the curb and sometimes you have to drive over these mounds to park. On one side of the street, water pools along the curb and just sits there stanking for months. Since the parking is unrestricted, this allows people to store their cars on the street, sometimes for months at a time.

Why doesn't LA sweep this stretch? As I've traveled around LA, I haven't found another street that doesn't have signs saying you can't park there on a certain day for a couple of hours while they sweep it.

What is your experience?

My street is unrestricted, but the street sweeper does come by. They just drive around the parked cars, and cars are moved often so the street stays clean.

Why don't you call the city to find out about that situation?

Does it bother you that much? I'm amazed that ANY free parking exists in any of Los Angeles. It is a parking zoo.

No, it doesn't bother me. I like it. I'm trying to find more streets like it.
