    Violating Parking Restrictions Near Fenway Will Cost You

    If you violate resident parking restrictions in the neighborhoods around Fenway Park during Red Sox games, it's going to cost you a pretty penny.

    Boston Mayor Marty Walsh signed an ordinance Thursday that will pilot raising fines from $40 to $100.

    The legislation is aimed at discouraging game attendees from parking in curbside spaces designated as Fenway/Kenmore resident parking zones. Vehicles that do not have a resident parking sticker are subject to the increased fine.

    The ordinance, sponsored by Councilor Josh Zakim, worked through the City Council with Government Operations Chair Michael Flaherty.

    "This ordinance is a great step forward for residents of the Fenway, Kenmore Square, and Audubon Circle. These changes will help restore the parking balance in the neighborhoods around Fenway Park during some of the busiest months of the year - an issue I've consistently heard about for almost two years," said Zakim.

    The change will go into effect two hours before any Major League Baseball game played at Fenway Park, and will extend to two hours after the game. The pilot will end on Dec. 31.

    Opening Day at Fenway Park is on Monday, April 13.
