Parking Ticket Heavens: SF’s Top Ticket Neighborhoods

Well…another interesting record for San Francisco. We enjoy having the highest average ticket (traffic) price in the entire U.S. The city’s traffic police blessedly issue us $124 million worth of tickets every year. SpotAngels, a parking startup, informs us of this streetwise fact.

So, which neighborhoods are the true ticket bonanzas for our city’s coffers? SpotAngels put together city data with their parking data on parking spot location, regulation and the average ticket price to come up with the following list of most expensive ticket neighborhoods.

Coming in first is SoMa with a whopping $11 million in tickets. Next is the Inner Richmond at $10.5 million. The Mission is third with $9.5 million.

The highest average ticket price is the Civic Center at $108. Right behind that is the Financial District, South of Market and Inner Richmond, coming in at $106 average ticket prices.

Be careful out there.
