CES Executive Director Interview Regarding L.A. City Plan to Raise Parking Ticket Fees
KFPK FM 90.7 -Truthdig Radio, hosted by Peter Scheer
Thursdays, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM.
Coalition for Economic Survival Executive Director Larry Gross was featured on Truthdig Radio on KPFK 90.7 FM on May 10, 2012. Truthdig editor Peter Scheer hosted the program report on the City of Los Angeles’ plan to increase parking ticket fees for the sixth time in the last seven years.
CES' major concern is with the increase related to street sweeping violations, which we believe would disproportionately affect low income, renter and working-class families in Koreatown, Pico Union, Westlake and other neighborhoods a high density of apartment buildings and too few parking spaces. The proposal would bring those fines up to $78, higher than any other surrounding city, and would exceed the day of pay for a minimum wage earner.
Produced by the team at the award-winning website Truthdig.com, each week the radio show features segments on some of the stories found on the website, alongside original reports generated for the radio show.
