Parking Meters: No Exceptions!

Fighting a fire in downtown Jacksonville? Not without a quarter.

Even with an over abundance of parking in our downtown core, city officials still feel compelled to squeeze parking meters on every last square inch of downtown's streets. In most cities, parking at a fire hydrant brings big fines, but in Jacksonville it only costs a quarter (if you've got one).

Will the downtown parking enforcement ticket a fire truck at this hydrant with an expired meter? Probably.
