The city is hiking the fine for alternate side parking violations starting tomorrow, according to the Department of Sanitation.
Fines for violators–who fail to move their vehicle to make way for street cleaning–will increase to $65 starting on Feb. 20 in all five boroughs.
Currently, drivers who receive tickets for ASP violations in the outer boroughs pay $45, with the fine only being $65 for those ticketed in Manhattan on or below 96th St.
The Department of Sanitation made an announcement on Twitter last month that the fine would be $65 citywide.
“Residents are our partners in keeping the city healthy, safe and clean,” the DOT said in a Tweet.
