LA Gold Card, Don’t Go Parking Without It

Los Angeles residents are up in arms over the existence of the “Gold Card,”  a plastic parking bureau card distributed to city offices that includes a special phone number.

The obscure Gold Card Services Desk allowed the mayor and other elected officials to expedite citation reviews.

On the back, the card notes that the holder may have an “urgent need to resolve any parking citation matter which requires special attention.” It promises “you will be immediately connected to our Gold Card Specialist.”

A report released Thursday by City Controller Wendy Greuel found that about 1,000 Los Angeles city parking citations were dismissed over a two-year period —  some without justification —  as part of the Gold Card operation.

LA gold card where membership has advanages. Don’t leave home without it.
