Gift from the Miami Parking Authority: fewer citations during the holidays


The Miami Parking Authority will launch its two-week ‘Holiday Parking Courtesy Citation” program on Monday.

That means drivers whose meters expire get a reprieve.

Instead of being issued a ticket, they will get a courtesy citation explaining that they have been granted up to one free hour of parking beyond their expiration time.

The program is in effect 24-hours-a-day, every day through Jan. 2.

To be eligible for the time extension, drivers must have purchased parking at a single-space meter, a Pay & Display master meter or via Pay by Phone.

The authority said it is offering the reprieve in the spirit of the holidays to “thank its customers and give back to the community by allowing customers extra time to go about their business in a more relaxed manner. “
