Weston residents who have been paying $35 per parking ticket may be disappointed to know that fines have now increased to $50.
Police Chief John Troxell announced the fine increase last week, which applies to the Aspetuck Valley dog park, Devil's Den and Devil's Glen.
Troxell has said many people who park illegally considered the $35 fine the cost of parking and were not deterred. He said he hopes the larger fine will erase that mentality and ensure that people park in the proper areas.
Parking violations in Morehouse Farm Park increased to $35, up from $15.
What do you think of the parking fine increase? Do you think it will deter people from parking illegally? Or will they just consider the $50 as the cost of parking? Let us know in the comment section below!
