SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – 2013 ushers in a “change” of sorts – time to start collecting your quarters because metered parking will be enforced in the City by the Bay on Sundays.
“Starting on January 6, we’ll begin enforcing Sunday meters from noon until 6 p.m.,” warned Paul Rose, spokesman, San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Agency. “For the first three Sundays we’ll be offering warnings rather than citations to help get the word out that this has started.”
He acknowledged complaints, particularly from people who attend church or other lengthy events on Sundays.
As a way to mitigate the concerns, meters will have extended, four-hour time limits on Sundays, and it will be possible to prepay the meter.
“So people don’t have to run outside of their event to put more coins in the meter,” said Rose.
“All of the meters will have signage saying that Sundays are now enforced,” he continued. “This will be city-wide, and will encompass both the newer SF parking meters and the older meters.”
