Last year, UBC issued almost 40,000 parking tickets on campus. If all of these tickets were paid, the total would come to well over $1 million. But UBC has a checkered past when it comes to collecting parking fines, including losing a $4 million class action lawsuit that ended up being overturned by retroactive legislation from the province allowing UBC to continue to write parking tickets.
This heat map shows where the 37,620 tickets the university issued from January to November 2015 went. Light purple to green indicates fewer tickets — red areas indicate high volume of tickets. Zoom in on the map and click the circles for more information.
Toyotas and Hondas received the most tickets — not surprising given their popularity. Although they didn't receive enough tickets to make the top 10, quite a few luxury makes — including Maserati, Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Ferrari — received citations.
