Here's What You Could Be Paying For Street Cleaning Tickets
-- Street sweeping would go up to $78--that's the sixth hike in seventh years for a 73% increase since 2005.
-- Parking in a red zone would go up to $98.
-- Parking too close to a hydrant would go to $73.
-- Parking in a fire lane would hit $68.
-- The city collected $134 million in parking fines last year, one-third of which were for street cleaning--it's expected to pull in $150 million this year.
-- Still, the number of tickets has decreased--it was at 3.2 million six years ago and is expected to be at 2.5 million this year.
-- How do other cities do it? Torrance/El Segundo fine for street sweeping: $43. Pasadena: $46.50. South Pas/Malibu/Rancho Palos Verdes: no street cleaning tickets.
