This is the most ticketed parking spot in Toronto

Bright yellow parking tickets are a common site on windshields across Toronto. Naturally, the city generates quite a bit of cash from these infractions, so which spots racked up the most money this past year?

That's what data scientist David Brait wanted to find out. He analyzed the city's 2015 parking data (which is all readily available online) and discovered one such location. According to his research, 410 College St. generated most maximum fine tickets (796 at $450 each) for a yearly total of $358,200.

And this isn't an anomaly, writes Brait. In 2014 and 2013, 410 College garnered the city $401,850 and $291,150, respectively.

Other hot spots across Toronto include 18 Grenville St. ($153,900), 35 Balmuto St. ($146,700) and 60 Murray St. ($129,150).

And your parking-related woes aren't over just yet because starting today, the city is increasing its fines for four different infractions. If you get caught double parking, blocking a sidewalk, stopping in a TTC zone or parking in a high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane, you'll now face a $150 ticket.
