Drivers getting tickets for parking their cars overnight on some Beverly Hills streets are calling the citations unfair, saying the streets' parking signs are deceptive.
A parking ticket costing $63 shared by an NBC4 viewer showed his car was cited last week on N. Doheny Drive, for parking between the hours of 2:30 a.m. and 5 a.m.
Beverly Hills officials said they cite about 350 cars a month for illegal overnight parking, which totals more than $22,000 in revenue for the city.
But parking signs along the block don't include restrictions on overnight parking, unless drivers look closely to see "2:30 AM - 5:00 AM Ticket" handwritten in permanent marker at the bottom of a sign.
Signs prohibiting overnight parking can only be found further up the street, at the intersection with Beverly Boulevard.
"The signs for overnight parking are not everywhere," said Parking Enforcement Supervisor Alesha Johnson.
Officials said the city did not write the overnight times on the signs along the street.
