LA Mulls Licensing for Valet Attendants

All sorts of additional fees that will be passed on the consumers


If you've ever had second thoughts about handing your keys over to a valet attendant, the Los Angeles City Council says you're not alone.

The Council's Public Safety Committee has begun working on an ordinance that would require all valet parking operators and attendants to have city issued permits.

The March 26 proposal (PDF) for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) would also implement parking meter fees "equivalent to the total potential parking meter revenue for on-street spaces" near any meters regulated to accommodate valet parking.
