Have you ever parked and had to drop what seemed like fifty quarters into the meter only to have it buy you a measly 15 minutes? If you thought that SF has ridiculously high parking meter rates, you would be right.
If you thought the SFMTA gave out a lot of tickets before, just watch out. The agency has got itself in a bit of a financial hole ($21 million deficit) and they are out on the prowl to rake in some much needed cash. Now you’re going to have to keep an eye out for the parking police, i.e. the meter maids, more than ever. There’s got to be an iPhone app for that, right?
