Toronto’s “No Parking Zones” – 10 Locations that Attracted the Most Amount of Parking Tickets.

Update:

The City of Toronto was busy last year generating revenue from parking tickets. The City wrote about 2.8 million parking tickets in 2008.

The Toronto Star has written an article which provides the top ten (10) locations at which most of the parking tickets were issued. Apparently there is not enough parking spots at several hospitals (ie – Sunnybrook Hospital,Trillium Health Centre, Mount Sinai Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital,Hospital for Sick Children and Scarborough Hospital – Grace Division) as it is in the immediate vicinity of these hospitals, where the most amount of parking tickets are issued. The lack of parking spots also applies to Colleges and Universities (Seneca College – Newnham Campus and Ryerson University and the University of Toronto – Scarborough Campus)
