How Many Parking Tickets Does UPS Get Each Day in San Francisco? Lots and Lots

Here’s the scene in the Financial District – why does the UPS driver double park instead of using the space near the curb? Double parking can get you a ticket, right? The orange cone is a nice touch, however….

Uh oh, this doesn’t look good. Do UPS drivers really try to fool the DPT ticket issuers with the old I-already-got-a-ticket routine? Apparently

Oh well, that’s another $78 down the drain. Did this truck get two tickets yesterday?

That’s what you might conclude after checking the DPT website for online ticketing information.

Does UPS currently owe thousands of dollars to S.F. for illegal parking? Yes.

But if it’s only $2000 a day or so, well that’s just the cost of doing business in the big city, right?

    Comcast drivers have now started doing the same thing; parking in the middle of the street and surrounding their trucks with cones, even when there’s space to pull over – the power of companies over people.

    I believe UPS has a pay-in-bulk deal where they get invoiced monthly and don’t get clamped in exchange for waiving disputes.
