I am writing this letter on behalf of all handicapped persons. On Wednesday, Oct. 19, 1990, I had to go to the East Valley School in Panorama City. I am a disabled person. There is a designated handicapped parking space in front of this building in which I parked. I returned to find a parking ticket on my window. I caught up with the parking enforcement person and showed him that I had a handicapped placard in the window. He told me no one was allowed to park there because they cleaned the street that day. The only other places available to me were the south side of Lanark Street and in a parking lot adjacent to the Social Services Building, at a distance of at least 200 to 300 feet.

Holden said fellow council members were heavily lobbied and accused them of overlooking business ties between Lockheed Corp.

Fearing a potential loss of revenue as well as a "serious loss of integrity" in Los Angeles city government, Controller Rick Tuttle on Friday blasted a Department of Transportation proposal that would exempt the news media from many parking restrictions. Tuttle conceded that he has no binding influence on the proposal but nonetheless said he sent letters Friday to the mayor and City Council President Pat Russell, asking them to stop its implementation.

Motorists parking illegally in Los Angeles--and getting away with it because of lax enforcement--soon will start feeling the pinch of a tough new policy. In the next three years, the city's Department of Transportation plans to double the 1.4 million parking citations that were issued in 1984, including an estimated 237,000 that went to violators on the Westside. Revenue to the city also is expected to double from the current $25 million to $50 million a year over the same period.

Working members of Los Angeles' news media could ignore parking meters and the restrictions of limited-time parking zones and park with impunity for up to 20 minutes in no-parking areas under a proposed city policy scheduled to be implemented within two weeks. The parking policy would afford the news media the same courtesies already extended by the City of Los Angeles to other government agencies and public utilities.

Transportation officials said Friday that commuters going into Los Angeles had better brace for post-earthquake congestion to get worse next week. The crippled freeways and jammed side streets will be filled with more people returning to their jobs. "Many people did not attempt to get to work after the earthquake," said Frank White, chief of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. "But on Monday--we are all afraid of what we will face."

As awful as traffic has been since the earthquake, transportation officials said Friday that commuters had better brace for congestion to get worse next week. The crippled freeways and jammed side streets will be filled with more people returning to their jobs. "Many people did not attempt to get to work after the earthquake," said Frank White, chief of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. "But on Monday--we are all afraid of what we will face." In an effort to ease what could be monumental traffic jams, Mayor Richard Riordan intends to announce a plan today to relieve congestion on city streets.

A review board made up of city and county officials will begin developing a master plan for the Civic Center in an effort to better coordinate government building in the area. The Civic Center Authority's 10 members will meet this week for the first time since the 1980s, when it stopped meeting because of a lack of interest from politicians.
