SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — KRON 4’s Stanley Roberts was on Clement Street in San Francisco when he caught some people behaving badly.
Within minutes of getting to the busy street, Roberts spotted cars double parked all over the street.
One car had its hazard lights on. After a closer look, it turned out there wasn’t even a driver in the car.
Robert’s waited until the woman returned, putting her lunch in the passenger street before getting into her car and driving off.
It wasn’t just drivers with their hazard lights on. Some put on their turn signal, making it appear that they were waiting for a parking spot.
That’s still considered double parking, and drivers can be issued tickets “on the fly.” That means a ticket will be mailed to them.
The fine for double parking in San Francisco is $110. Parking in a commercial zone will set a driver back $88, and the fine for parking in an active bus zone starts at $270.
