Pahk Smahtly: Boston Parking Tickets Going Up July 2nd
Boston parking ticket fines are going up on July 2 for numerous violations, including parking in resident parking without being a resident, not paying a meter and being parked at a meter past the time limit. The good news is that some of the money collected will fund bike and pedestrian connections from the Roxbury-Fenway Connector linking the Southwest Corridor and the Emerald Necklace. Along with 11 parking tickets going up in price, the city will no longer tow vehicles parking in violation of posted overnight street cleaning programs where it begins at or after midnight and ends no later than 7 am. But those vehicles will be given a $90 parking ticket. “Parking regulations are a crucial component of urban transportation systems and abiding by them helps considerably to keep streets safe, functioning and equitable,” said Boston Transportation Department Commissioner Gina N. Fiandaca via press release.
