LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles residents used to parking their cars on the grassy strip between the curb and the sidewalk will have to break the habit or risk getting a ticket.

Starting Monday the city is enforcing a new law that says it’s illegal to leave vehicles on so-called parkways or berms.

The practice has been common in densely populated neighborhoods but the City Council in June decided to ban it.

Parking officers had been placing warning fliers under drivers’ windshields since July. Now they are issuing tickets.
