A new survey finds that San Francisco shares the top spot with New York City for the steepest parking meter fines in the U.S. at $65.

The Municipal Transportation Agency survey also says San Francisco has the third highest hourly parking rates for metered spaces at $4.25 cents in high demand areas. The study compared 40 major U.S. cities.
