    Perhaps a sign of a new culture at the  Los Angeles’ Bureau of Parking Enforcement, the city has decided, for the first time, to not issue tickets for parking during scheduled street cleaning from Dec. 26 to 30.

    In the past, traffic officers issued tickets to drivers who left their vehicles in restricted parking zones regardless of whether street sweepers were working their route.

    This year, however, workers are being given the days following Christmas off, according to the bureau. And, it seems drivers are getting a late Christmas treat.

    Some parking enforcement officers with the LA Department of Transportation were engaging in a range of inappropriate and illegal behavior with little or no consequences.

    This is a departure from news coming out of the bureau in the last year, including a porn scandal uncovered in an NBC4 investigation earlier this year and its reputation of having rude traffic officers.

    Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa recently asked Los Angeles Police Commander Michael Williams to come over temporarily from the LAPD to help reform the bureau.
