In San Francisco the SFMTA fine for street cleaning violations is a whopping $64 per ticket.

How does that compare to street cleaning tickets in other big US cities?

San Francisco - $64
New York - $45-65 (depending on the type of violation)
Los Angeles - $73
Seattle - $47
Chicago - $50
Boston - $40

Begs the question: Should our fine amounts be so much more than other big cities (LA excluded)?

These are permits for which the SFMTA charges citizens $106 annually for the "privilege" of parking on their own street for more than two hours during business hours.
