An interesting note about the street sweeping rules in Los Angeles is that the switch to first/third or second/fourth whichever day of the week of the month has created something I think is applicable this week. Tomorrow is the third Monday of the month, so street sweeping for the first/third Monday have parking restrictions tomorrow. But Tuesday is the fourth Tuesday of the month, so I think there’s no street sweeping on the same streets the following day.
