No Signs No Fines
The City of Torrance never has had “No Parking” signs for the purpose of street sweeping. Yet, despite numerous objections from Torrance citizens, in 2014 the City Council voted to implement the so-called "Optimized" Street Sweeping (OSS) Program, installing thousands of No Parking signs and ticketing for non-compliance. After 100 years, what has changed? The difference is that now citizens pay fines if they don't move their cars. There has been no change in service, and the road under a ticketed car is still unswept.
The OSS Program was ostensibly created to make Torrance compliant with California Water Quality Control Board mandates. However, the installation of catch-basin grates is all that is required. The ticketing program has enriched the City's coffers without any benefit to the environment.
Sign this petition before to tell the City to remove the signs and stop the ticketing. No signs/No fines!!!
