When was the last time you got a parking ticket? Or maybe the better question is where was the last place you got a parking ticket?
Metro News just published its findings of the city’s parking tickets issued between 2013 to May 2016, and listed the top-5 most ticketed streets in 2015:
1. Bannatyne Avenue
2. McDermot Avenue
3. Hargrave Street
4. William Avenue
5. Kennedy Street
So be careful parking by hospitals, because when you’re around the sick and vulnerable it makes you vulnerable to tickets too. And, hey, just be careful parking downtown, period, because city records indicated 165,279 tickets were issued in 2015, totalling $5.5 million in paid parking fines. And data shows every year Winnipeg is increasing its revenue in this area.
