Los Angeles features mostly freeways, wider streets, and large parking garages that are great for any type of car. We recommend that you rent an intermediate or full-size car if you’re planning to discover the scenic routes and national parks outside the city. If you want to explore the city center, rent a convertible to fully soak up the LA sunshine. Fortunately, the city’s idyllic climate lends itself to any style of car driven year-round.
Throughout the state of California, the maximum speed limit on highways is 65 mph. Where indicated, drivers can go 70 mph. On two-lane undivided highways, the speed limit is 55 mph, while in business and residential districts the limit is 25 mph. Speed limits in Los Angeles also depend on the conditions on the road. You should watch out for construction zones which often have reduced speed zones.
In Southern California, petrol prices average $3.73 a gallon. The price of petrol is higher in California than the national average due to the state’s strict environmental laws, which mean petrol stations only offer a rare blend of fuel. In addition, California’s taxes are slightly higher than some other states, meaning petrol is more expensive in Los Angeles.
There is a wealth of parking options in Los Angeles. In popular tourist areas you can expect to pay between $8 and $25 for a space in a parking lot. On many of Los Angeles’ blocks you will find meter parking that conveniently takes credit card payments. Meanwhile, in the suburbs you can take advantage of free street parking. Some residential areas and side streets require a permit, so look out for the parking signposts.
