Parking-ticket fees have just gone up.

Special bonus: The city will no longer tow cars blocking street sweepers on streets with overnight sweeping. Instead, the owners of those cars will get $90 fines. People who park in no-parking zones on streets with daytime sweeping will get $40 fines - and might just have to pay even more, because towing of those cars will continue.

Apparently a bunch of parking fines are going up effective Monday (https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2018/07/01/boston-imposing-heftie...), which is fine and dandy as far as this car-free guy is concerned. But what I would really like to see is more attention to and enforcement of MOVING violations. To way too many drivers, yellow lights are just a challenge and red lights are a mere suggestion. It's bad, it's getting worse, and it's going to get someone killed.
