No more free parking for hybrid drivers

February 11, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
There will be no more free parking for drivers of hybrid vehicles in the city of Los Angeles.Last year, the Los Angeles City Council approved an ordinance allowing drivers with a state Clean Air Vehicle decal on their vehicle to park at city meters for free. However, the city's financial problems forced members to reconsider the issue.

Starting March 1, drivers of Toyota Prius, Honda Civic Hybrid, Honda Insight or Ford Escape models will have to feed the meters.

The move is expected to generate an additional $300,000 in parking revenue.

Hybrid vehicle owners who park at meters during the month of February will be given written notices about the end of free parking.
