The Work Trucks/RVs/Trailers aren't in front for a day or a few days but weeks or months at a time. Most residents try and be courteous to fellow neighbors with their vehicles. It's the few who are not that we have to be protected from.

I live in Harbor City, not in the same block or section as Paul Murray, but on Frampton Ave between PCH and Anaheim streets. In our section of Harbor City the very long block (which would be equal to 2 or 3 regular city blocks) in front of muliple family residences has a terrible problem with commercial vehicles parking for long periods of time. Most of the vehicles are broken down trucks, or large stakebed trucks filled with debris that get parked right outside of peoples front doors for days, weeks and in some cases months. In our section of Harbor City the parking restrictions would get rid of the vehicles that are parked there often by non residents and practically abandoned. It is not fun at all to come out of your home for weeks to find a truck full of trash, with no licence plates sitting just yards outside your front door, with no way to avoid looking at the thing. I know that the 3 condo associations and the mobile home park have all voiced concerns about this situation in our part of Harbor City. As always, there are always different viewpoints to consider and I hope all concerns are addressed.

PARKING ENFORCEMENT IN CITY OF LOS ANGELES IS A HUGE PROBLEM.
Although our business is not located in Harbor City, I and other business owners as well as residents face many challenges with the City of Los Angeles and illegally parked vehicles.
Our company is located in between a residential and commercial area of San Pedro along with many other businesses we face problems with parking and crime because of no signs being posted and little help from parking enforcement. For the past 3 years the problem with illegally parked recreational vehicles and regular type vehicles has become much worse than it ever has been in the past 26 years that the business has been here. These vehicles constantly dump there waste in the streets, run drug deals at night and whore houses out of the RV's during the day. Myself and several other business owners on our street have been in constant contact with Janice Hanns office to try to solve the problem. Our biggest opstical we face is not have posted signs with NO OVERNIGHT PARKING. Because of this we have to ALL take time out of our busy day write down vehicle information on several vehicles at a time and the call parking enforcement to report these people. We have had the LAFD, LAPD, Health Dept. out to help stop this problem. As soon as we get rid of one vehicle another one pulls right up. These are transients living on the streets, predators, criminals, people that threaten society for numerous differnt reasons. Because of iggnorant people such as yourself we have not been able to get the proper signs posted in all of Los Angeles to stop this problem.
HERES A CLUE: How about you pay the money to one of the many storage facilties in the city and store your RV there? Or maybe park it in your own driveway? Maybe clean out your RV immediatly after using it? If you own a recreational vehicle it is not anyones responsablity to put up with it but your own.
This is a LUXURY you have not a right. We all have the rights to a safe and clean enviorment. Maybe you should think about this next time you complain about getting a ticket or getting towed after parking illeagly. Lets try helping the city we all share and live in not make it worse than it already is.

...Harbor City resident Murray doesn't understand the difference between a "residential" neighborhood and a "commercial/industrial " district...get the commercial trucks and trailers out of residentail zones. Period.
