Don’t:

  • Honk at drivers who are bothering you. While it’s a common thing to do in New York or Chicago, honking in LA represents an emergency.
  • Overlook the parking signs. There is a strict parking limit in LA. Obey parking times to avoid parking tickets.
  • Ignoring parking tickets or signals. This can result in towing of your vehicle
  • Be surprised if it takes more than an hour to drive just 10 miles. LA is notorious its traffic.
  • Smoke in public areas without checking first as many are restricted areas. So think twice to smoke in public parks and beaches.
  • Bother celebrities for a photo or autograph. You can enjoy the thrill of seeing them, but leave them be. They’re living their lives just like you.
  • Judge the city by its not so glamorous airport.
