I parked my car for less than two hours and returned to the same block to park later during the day. Why did I receive a ticket for parking in excess of posted time limits in downtown Hollywood?
A citation is issued for exceeding the posted time limit if the vehicle was parked on the same block for a period longer than 3 hours. If you leave the downtown area for a few hours, the enforcement officer doesn’t know when you left or when you came back. They do not know if you are a downtown employee, downtown resident, or just a visitor. They do know that your vehicle was in the area earlier and also there hours later. If you are electronically chalked at both times on the same day, you can be cited.
