Traveling through stunning San Francisco can be breathtaking – and quite costly – if you don’t pay attention to the posted parking guidelines. Fortunately, we are launching our monthly SF parking tickets report to keep you updated on what streets are racking up the most tickets, and how many tickets are being written per month. Spoiler alert: Be extra careful on Folsom street!
So, how many parking tickets are written monthly in SF? A total of 91,053, to be exact, in August.
The majority of tickets are running you around $85 a pop, for violations like parking in a tow-away zone, a street cleaning zone, an expired meter, parking in a white zone, or double parking. Parking on the sidewalk? This will cost you $110 bucks.
Fines can rise quickly if you park in a bus zone or in a wheelchair access zone (both will cost you $288).
The heftiest fines came in at $866 for Violation of Disabled Parking Provisions a.k.a parking in a handicapped spot. (Just don’t do it.)
Here’s the breakdown:
