More than 1.5 million parking tickets have been issued to Aucklanders in the past three years - and most of them were down to pure laziness, Auckland Transport says.
In 2018, AT dished out 503,891 parking tickets. That was less than in 2017 when 510,374 were issued, but 8,229 more than the amount issued in 2016.
Here's the top 10 streets where you're most likely to get hit with a parking ticket:
1. Princes St, CBD
2. Jellicoe St car park, CBD
3. Ocean View Rd, Waiheke Island
4. Federal St, CBD
5. The Māngere Town Centre
6. Queen St, CBD
7. Hobson St, CBD
8. Union St, CBD
9. Orakau Rd, Māngere
10. Customs St West, CBD.
