FORT WORTH - Fort Worth residents will pay more for expired parking meters if the City Council votes in favor new fine rates.
A proposal before the council Tuesday would increase the fine from $30 to $40 for unpaid meters. It’s one of 10 fines the council will consider increasing, including the fine for oversized commercial trucks, which will go up by more than five times the current rate.
Parking in a disabled space will go up to $200 from $155. Parking in a fire lane would also go up to $200 and the fee for parking in a no parking zone would increase $35 to $60 per ticket.
The new rates would take effect Jan. 1.
