The end is nigh for parking freeloaders.
Downtown parking that becomes free at 6 p.m. won't be free much longer, as San Francisco prepares for meters that stay active until 10 p.m. -- and go active on Sundays, too, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The city will install 200 new meters over the next few weeks in Mission Bay, near the ballpark where people currently park for free. Those meters will be active until 10 p.m., and will cost between $5 and $7 per hour, the newspaper reported.
Bring your quarters. All of them.
The new plan makes street parking cost about the same as the private lots that charge $20 for a mundane game -- and $100 for the Dodgers, the newspaper reported.
