San Francisco's parking violations fines are among the highest in the nation. San Francisco collected $41.5 million in parking meters revenues in 2011 and that number is likely to increase as SFMTA will now be enforing parking meters in Sundays. Citations are not supposed to be a source of revenue. They are supposed to be a DETERRENT!
As residents and taxpayers of San Francisco we believe that the SFMTA and the City of San Francisco are using parking meters as a source of revenue and not as a detterent to poor parking behavior. The SFMTA needs to be accountable to all the citizens of San Francisco. We need a balanced, unbiased municipal transportation policy. We respectfully request that the Mayor and District Supervisors immediately request that the SFMTA: 1. Reduce the fines for parking meters.
2. Reduce the fines for street cleaning. 3. Does not enforce Sunday parking meters.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
