COVID-19 forced many people to venture outdoors to see loved ones last year, and it appears many people who chose to visit popular parks for some fresh air also got a parking ticket during their outing.
The City of Toronto released parking ticket data this week, and the top ten most ticketed places included two hospitals and two parks.
The most commonly ticketed spot in 2020 was North York General Hospital at 4001 Leslie Street, according to City data. More than 5,400 parking tickets handed out there last year.
