SFMTA approves parking permit, handicap violation fee increases 

Neighborhood parking permits and disabled parking fines were some of the 2012 fee increases the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency approved during Tuesday’s board meeting at City Hall.

Sonali Bose, the SFMTA chief financial officer and director of finance and information technology, explained that many of the increases serve as a cost recovery measure for The City.

Increased fees include upping the disabled parking fine from $750 to $850, effective July 1, along with other fee and fine increases for residential, business and student parking permits, boot removals and transit violations, as Bose reported.

Barry Toronto, a San Francisco taxi driver, told the board Tuesday he was concerned about the disabled parking fine increase as a driver who occasionally uses handicap zones to drop off disabled or grocery-laden passengers.
