Get ready to pay more if you’re caught parking illegally in Arlington. Parking fines will increase on Thursday.

A ticket for parking at an expired meter is going up to $35. It was previously $25.

The fine for most other parking violations will increase from $40 to $50.

The county issued more than 225,000 parking tickets last year, bringing in $7.4 million, according to the Sun Gazette. The new fines are expected to generate an additional $1.5 million per year.

Also Thursday, ART bus fares and STAR transit fares will increase.

    Why is the fine going up? What is the justification?

    They have to pay for new equipment for the SWAT Team after that event the other day, LOL!

  • Hi, just to clarify — the increase in parking ticket fines goes up Thursday, July 1 (not tomorrow).

    • Diana’s right, this was published a day early. Sorry for the confusion.

    Well, at least this is a legitimate revenue stream. Make the guilty pay.
