Get ready to pay more if you overstay your parking limit because fines are expected to go up in Montreal.

According to reports, Projet Montreal will consider increasing fines. Councillor Benoit Dorais, executive committee member, told reporters that the city will implement higher fines but the amount has yet to be determined. Dorais added that ticket prices in Montreal have not increased since 2009.

Members of Ensemble Montréal, the official opposition, expressed dismay with the possible ticket hikes on Twitter.

In Montreal’s 2018 budget, the city says it will collect $206.6 million from parking and traffic tickets. This amount is up $11.7 from last year’s budget.
