Those caught parking in front of a fire hydrant or in a fire lane in Syracuse will have to shell out twice as much in fines starting July 1st. The hefty $40 penalties are among nearly three dozen increases in parking fines approved by common councilors Tuesday. Parking in a handicap parking spot without a permit will get you a $75 ticket, up from $50. However, nearly all of the other fines increased by only $5. Councilor Nader Maroun says they haven’t changed since 1997.
