Prince George's County Council member Will Campos has introduced legislation that would raise fines for parking violation.

Finding a parking space in Prince George's County can be very difficult, especially in some residential neighborhoods, where those parking spots are worth their weight in gold. 

That's why Prince George's County Council member Will Campos of Hyattsville has introduced legislation that would raise fines for parking violations and give those violators a lot less time before their cars are towed.

It's all part of an effort to discourage illegal parking in residential areas of the county. The council is also considering legislation that would allow neighborhoods to establish zoned parking permits such as the ones used in Arlington County, Montgomery County, and the District of Columbia. 

Authorities are also going to crack down on violators. Fines are expected to go up for unregistered vehicles, fake handicapped permits, and those parked at expired parking meters.
