Project Description

Even though a significant portion of the unhoused population in Los Angeles and other U.S. cities live in their vehicles, it is unclear where they tend to park and how municipalities respond to their presence. 

While vehicular homelessness is undoubtedly a housing issue, its close connection to parking laws makes it a transportation issue as well. A recent UCLA study found widespread evidence of direct or indirect restrictions on vehicular homelessness across Los Angeles County. But what are these restrictions doing in practice?
