Glendale is latest city to increase cost of parking tickets

November 26, 2010 |  8:22 am

A parking ticket in Glendale will generally set a driver back more than in Burbank or Pasadena, and now, they're set to get even more expensive.

The City Council this week approved a $3 increase to parking citations in response to an equal amount imposed recently by state legislators on cities to help fund court operations.

Of 31 kinds of parking tickets levied within the city's borders, Glendale fines are higher than Burbank's in 23 cases and higher than Pasadena's in 28, according to a city survey of 11 cities in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

Meanwhile, Glendale fines are higher than the average fine among all cities more than half the time, according to the report, although they are generally lower than cities such as Los Angeles and Santa Monica.
