San Francisco is one of the of the priciest places to park in the country, according to a recent study.

The Board of Supervisors' legislative analyst recently released a report that shows the City by the Bay comes third in the list of most expensive places to feed the meter. Only Chicago and Los Angeles charge more at downtown parking meters, the report discovered.

Not only is it the most expensive place to park, San Francisco tied New York City for the highest meter violations, according to the report.

The confirmation comes as Muni officials expand the number of metered curbside parking spots in some parts of the City.

It costs $2 to $3.50 an hour to park at a meter in San Francisco, depending whether you're in the downtown area or neighborhood districts. Fines for expired meters range from $55 to $65.

The SF Municipal transportation Agency reports revenue from meters generated $38 million for the City and expired-meter fines brought in almost $30 million on top of that.
