As an active-duty military member who arrived in L.A. recently, I was just given a shocking indoctrination into your city's parking policy. My infraction was parking at a designated bus stop, indicated by a sign with an M in a circle. At the time I didn't realize what that meant, but now understand it to symbolize a "Metro" bus stop. I received a $265 ticket. I am willing to pay for my faux pas and learn from the experience. However, the threat of a parking fine is meant to be a deterrent, and for the average American, a $50 parking fine would be quite sufficient.

The City Council approved an amendment Wednesday to the Specific Plan for the Reseda Central Business District that it hopes will spur leasing activity in the area's commercial corridor by giving businesses more options to meet their parking requirements. Two years ago, a city-conducted study found an abundance of parking in the Reseda business district, although it was unevenly distributed among properties. Some lots had more parking spaces than needed; others had too few.

Los Angeles must restrict parking in the downtown central business district and encourage mass transit use. A mile-long subway connecting parking lots to downtown, as is done in Fort Worth, might be one answer. Most of the former Pacific Electric subway to downtown is still there but two or three building foundations have interrupted the continuity. What a shame! ROBERT T. McVAY King City, Calif.

Multilevel parking would not serve as a deterrent to "Big A" patrons? This conclusion was offered by the stadium expert (Mr. William A. Cunningham) on behalf of the City of Anaheim in their feud with the Angels (Sept. 11). Yeah, sure. The introduction of a behemoth industrial and parking structure at Anaheim Stadium will most certainly turn the casual fan into an endangered species. Even during the off-season, many of us spend a couple of hours in parking lots almost every day. In Southern California, they're referred to as "freeways."

Responding to concerns about overflow parking from a large apartment complex, the City Council on Monday will consider banning parking on Ogle Street between Irvine and Aliso avenues from midnight to 6 a.m. Residents on Ogle Street complain that tenants of the nearby Oakwood Apartments on Irvine Avenue in Newport Beach take up too much parking and also make noise when they arrive late at night.

In going over your readers' letters last week, you'd think the Raiders were moving to the moon or something. Come on, folks, a brand-new stadium only 20 minutes away with plenty of parking? Surely this is a bonus for most of the fans at least. DAVID C. BLOXHAM Fullerton

In an effort to eliminate parking problems caused largely by school sports activities, only residents will be allowed to park on streets near Wagner Elementary School under a measure approved this week by the City Council. The action came after residents urged the council to impose permit parking on portions of Trumpet Avenue, Anderson Street, Hawthorne Street, Tennyson Avenue, Steinbeck Street, Shaw Circle and Seville Street.

City officials said Monday that a number of increases in the price of public parking in Glendale's downtown area will take effect June 5 as part of a plan to make more parking available for shoppers. The rate increases, along with new restrictions on parking time limits in several public lots, will encourage short-term parking in areas close to shops and businesses.

The City Council has approved higher fines for parking violations but decided to maintain the rates for ambulance services. The $6 increase in fines for a host of parking violations will take effect immediately. But council members voted 4 to 1 Tuesday against a proposed 6% increase in ambulance fees. City Manager Bill Smith said the higher fines will enable the city to recover the cost of processing the tickets at a time when the city is struggling to cover an anticipated $1.
