Vandals Get Two Free Hours of Parking When They Break Meters

Motorists, start your sledgehammers!

Vandals who break meters will get rewarded with two hours of free parking under a new system being installed this spring, sf.streetsblog.org reports.

According to the Metropolitan Transportation Agency, vandals are breaking between 240 and 450 parking meters each day in San Francisco, which costs the city nearly $300,000 in annual repairs.

Right now, vandals — or anyone for that matter — get to park for free at a broken meter, but only as long as the time designated time limit allows, whether it is 30 minutes or one hour. However, that might soon change under a new policy being consideration by the Agency board.
