JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- "I just came outside, and I saw a parking ticket," said Keenan Williams, a Jacksonville resident.
Hundreds of parking citations are written daily in Jacksonville by 10 full-time parking enforcement specialists patrolling the city.
"There's no one area that is worse than others. There are some that are more frequent, but none that are worse," said Robert Carle, city parking enforcement director, whose crew is tasked with ticketing downtown, Riverside, and San Marco metered parking equally. "They're looking to turn over parking, and achieve compliance."
But numbers from 2010 show that's not really true. There are areas where vehicles are ticketed more frequently than others - and none of them are downtown. The top four most ticketed spots in Jacksonville are all hospitals.
