The city of Winnipeg’s annual parking ban yielded fewer tickets this year compared to last.

However, more than 10,000 Winnipeggers had to dig into their pockets and pay up.

A total of 10,733 tickets were handed out from Dec. 1 through Feb. 29, which is down from 11,230 tickets during Dec. 1, 2018 through Feb. 28, 2019.

So far, about half of those tickets handed out in both years have been paid.

The previous season, there were two parking bans, resulting in a total of 1,965 tickets.
