After a new Alhambra resident received a ticket for parking his oversized U-Haul truck on the street overnight — even after purchasing a parking permit — we asked readers: What do you think about overnight parking in Alhambra and how informed do you feel about the city's regulations?
Out of 91 responses to our poll, half said they were very or somewhat informed about the city's parking regulations, while the other half said they were not very informed or didn't know anything about the rules. When asked about their satisfaction with Alhambra's overnight parking policies, 60 percent said they were not satisfied (results pictured above).
In anonymous comments on our poll, many readers asked the city to lower the price of overnight parking permits or abolish the regulations altogether. However, one respondent supported the policies, arguing that overnight parking permits keep crime away from city streets. Read what readers had to say below and tell us what you think!
