SAN FRANCISCO, CA – JANUARY 21: A parking ticket is seen on the windshield of a FedEx truck on January 21, 2011 in San Francisco, California. In an effort to eliminate a projected $21.2 million budget deficit by June 30, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has ordered parking and traffic officers to write more parking tickets and plans to reduce employee overtime.

Well everyone, it was great not waking up at 5am every Tuesday to move your car 3 blocks down to avoid that $80 dollar ticket.

San Francisco Municipal Transportation Association (SFMTA) announced last Wednesday that on Monday, June 15, it will resume enforcing parking violations related to street sweeping again. “HeadsUp: Beginning June 15th, we will begin enforcing street cleaning. Keeping our streets clean is vital, so please be sure to move your cars for our friends at @sfpublicworks” SFMTA tweeted early last week. 

The city stopped citing tickets early March during the early amidst of the shelter-in-place order. “We certainly understand the needed pause on street cleaning enforcement during the early months of shelter in place, but there have been consequences. Our mechanical sweeping crews have not been able to do as thorough a job cleaning, resulting in more litter and leaves on the streets,” Acting Public Works Director Alaric Degrafinried said in a statement. “As the City is slowly starting to reopen, we once again can provide the service San Franciscans expect and deserve.”

Start setting those alarms people!
