Don't let that meter run out! Parking fines in Colorado Springs are set to increase on March 2, 2009.

Beginning next month, shoppers downtown and throughout the city will want to watch the clock in order to save their wallet! The fines for an expired meter (violation 10.15.104C) at all city-owned meters will increase from $10 to $20.

The municipal court took other cities into consideration before making the decision. They say other communities charge the following: Arvada ($15), Boulder ($15), Denver ($25), Englewood ($20), Pueblo ($25), and Wheat Ridge ($15).

The city says $522,383 was collected in 2008 for metered parking violations.
