A parking ticket on the windshield is not a welcome sight for any driver. But when the driver is making her way across San Francisco performing charitable acts a parking ticket can really sting.
The SFMTA is raising Muni Adult fast passes by $2 and most parking fines by $3. An expired meter in Downtown will cost $75, while in other place in the city will run $65. The cost of removing a boot will be $312 and parking in a disabled zone will cost a violator $900.
San Francisco is done with the warnings. Parking enforcement officers will begin writing tickets for expired parking meters this Sunday, city officials said.
Authorities announced Friday that parking enforcement officers in Berkeley will soon join police in citing drivers who fraudulently use disabled placards to park in handicap spaces.
Fighting a parking ticket, even one you didn’t deserve, isn’t easy in San Francisco. As a lot of people who’ve fought them have found out, you may have to make your case more than once.
Imagine getting a nine-year-old parking ticket in the mail that was handed out in a city that you have never been to. Sounds crazy, but that is exactly what happened to two ConsumerWatch viewers.
