The Cost of Revenue from Vehicle Fines

The cost to manage vehicle citations and parking fees should be considered when relying on vehicle fees as city revenue. These are figures from the 2010-2011 Budget documents for three cities. This table shows the number of residents served by vehicle enforcement staff and the cost per resident for doing so. In 2011 the total revenue from all vehicle fines and parking fees was $9,927,000, planning city revenue from these fines and fees is at best a break-even proposition.
