And you thought you paid a lot for shipping
In a city where nearly 8.5 million people live in just over 300 square miles, it’s easy to see why parking is such a hassle. What you probably didn’t know is how much money the city makes from parking fines. Shipping companies, whose drivers often park their trucks illegally while making deliveries, are some of the easiest targets. In 2005, delivery companies paid over $102 million in New York City parking fines. The largest parking violator, UPS, received roughly 15,000 parking tickets a month that year.
