Free hour of parking from Miami Parking Authority

Starting Wednesday, December 17, the Miami Parking Authority (MPA) once again gets in the holiday spirit with the return of its popular “Holiday Parking Courtesy Citation Program” to help customers avoid parking tickets. 

From Wednesday through January 1, 2015, you will receive an extra free hour of parking on your meter. Just pay for the meter and when it expires, you receive that extra hour.

This applies to all on-street parking spaces managed by MPA. All customers who purchase parking at a single-space meter, a Pay & Display master meter, or via PayByPhone, will be eligible. Once their parking has expired, they will receive a special Holiday Courtesy Citation explaining that they have been granted up to one free hour of parking beyond their expiration time. 

“In the spirit of the holidays, the one-hour courtesy citation program is an opportunity for us to thank our customers and give back to our community,” said Arthur Noriega, CEO of MPA. “It allows parkers extra time to go about their business without the added stress of expired parking.”

Additionally, customers who use PayByPhone to park in the City of Miami no longer incur a .35 fee for the use of the service. On December 1, MPA became the only parking agency in Florida to absorb the mobile payment technology’s convenience fee. Residents of the City of Miami also receive a 20% discount when using PayByPhone.

“We are very pleased to learn that MPA continues its tradition of sharing some holiday cheer with our residents and visitors, allowing them a parking reprieve as they prepare for the celebrations,” said Francis Suárez, City of Miami commissioner.

Just how stupid do the MPA folks think everyone is?

Sure, a little credit for a few days in the "$pirit of the Holiday$".. and we'll all gonna be happy and think greatly of the system, while out neighbors everywhere get free parking or better deals all year long.

And what a coincidence, right in the middle of Xma$ the $hopping Holiday$, so people $pend more.. Just a beautiful $piritual thought indeed, for those dumb enough to buy into that, pun intended..
