The Miami Parking Authority has a special holiday gift for people who overstay the parking meter.
The “Holiday Parking Courtesy Citation” program started on Monday and runs until Jan. 2 and applies to all on-street parking spaces managed by the MPA in the City of Miami.
So, people whose meters have expired will be given up to one free hour of parking beyond their expiration time.
The program runs 24 hours per day, every day through Monday, Jan. 2. Parkers must buy parking at a single-space meter, a Pay & Display master meter, or via Pay by Phone in order to be eligible for the extra time.
