Think twice while parking your car.

Boston is raising fines for 11 frequent parking violations effective July 2, including those that “most negatively impact Boston residents” and “are a source of traffic congestion and safety issues on Boston’s streets,” the city’s transportation department announced in a news release.

Vehicles parked in violation of the overnight street cleaning program, which operates from midnight to 7 a.m., will no longer be towed, but will be subjected to an increased fine of $90 instead of $40. Vehicles violating the daytime street cleaning program will continue to be subject to towing, however.

“Parking regulations are a crucial component of urban transportation systems and abiding by them helps considerably to keep streets safe, functioning and equitable,” Gina N. Fiandaca, the department’s commissioner, said in a statement. “Boston drivers are strongly encouraged to voluntarily comply with all posted parking regulations and help BTD to maintain the safety of our roadways.”
