BOSTON (WHDH) - Mayor Marty Walsh proposed an increase to parking fines in Boston to help with traffic projects.
The proposed increases range from $15 to $50, with the fine for no parking in a zone to go from $55 to $90.
An unpaid meter, which is currently a $25 fine, would jump up to $40.
Double parking in Zone A would go from $45 to $75.
Officials said that altering the parking fines will encourage better compliance with existing laws and bring Boston’s fines in line with some peer U.S. cities.
