Have you been putting off renewing your car’s registration? Perhaps you are missing a license plate? About that...

Let’s just say it would behoove you to remedy that situation posthaste, because more stringent parking enforcement is coming to your neighborhood.

The Portland Bureau of Transportation recently expanded its operations by swearing in 22 new officers who will hit the streets on Monday, July 8 in the face of increasing citywide parking violations. Last month alone, officers issued citations for 2,400 vehicles with expired registration and 670 vehicles for missing license plates.

Expired tags, wrong-way parking, and blocking visibility at intersections are all areas of emphasis and could earn you a fine ranging from $55 to $145.
