Be careful where you park that car next time you're in San Francisco. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency wants to increase the amount of parking tickets it shells out, according to an announcement Monday.

Muni's $775 million budget still has a projected $21 million deficit which the agency plans to fill in with money from parking tickets, before the end of the fiscal year, on June 30.

Muni is down $11 million in anticipated revenue and up $9.6 milion in anticipated expenses.

The agency plans to redeploy parking cops, so they're working during peak ticketing hours. In addition, Muni will also be selling taxi permits, and reducing overtime. Officials said there are currently no plans to cut Muni service or raise fares.
