Mayor Marty Walsh proposed an increase to parking fines in Boston to help with traffic projects.
The proposed increases range from $15 to $50. The fine for parking in a ‘no parking’ zone would be boosted from $55 to $90.
The penalty for parking at an unpaid meter, which is currently a $25 fine, would jump to $40, and a motorist double-parked in Zone A would face a $75 ticket — up from the current penalty of $45.
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.
