Parking tickets are a nuisance to many Houston drivers, but they mean something completely different to the city.
A KHOU 11 Investigates analysis showed the city handed out more than 578,000 parking tickets between 2016-2018 and collected nearly $30 million in fines.
“I think that’s — excuse my language — but BS. There should be rules against this,” driver Dave Johnson said.
Tickets ranged from unlawfully parking in a handicapped spot, a tow-away zone or at an expired meter.
That analysis showed several city blocks and parking lots that had thousands more parking tickets than anywhere else.
