The District issues far more parking tickets than other cities of its size and after raking in $80 million last year it is poised to collect a record $90 million in fines this year alone.

The city’s 200 parking enforcement personnel issue more than 5,000 parking tickets a day, more than 1.6 million tickets already this fiscal year, according to a report released Wednesday by AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Parking ticket revenue is on track to top $90 million in D.C. this budget year, up from $80 million in fiscal 2010 and $71 million the year before, the report shows.
