St Pete Beach Fines Increasing

Parking violations at the beach are getting more expensive!

The city recently increased the amount of citations for not paying the meter or parking in a permit-only residential area will cost you.

Failing to pay in a beach lot at the parking station or on the Park Mobile app could result in a $40 ticket. Parking in a permit-only residential area could result in a $90 fine.

Every two hours, city leaders can issue another citation in the same amount.

t. Pete Beach leaders say the increased fines are necessary to encourage turnover and keep beachgoers from clogging up residential neighborhoods and spots designated for people who live on the beach.
