If you got a parking ticket in the city of San Francisco between 1995 and 2012, you may be owed some money.
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency says it has identified a total of $6.1 million in overpayments — in other words, vehicle owners who sent the government too much money — for some 200,000 tickets.
San Francisco issues 1.5 million tickets a year, Paul Rose, a spokesman with SFMTA, tells NPR's Robert Siegel.
From now until March 3, people can get their money back. After that, the government will keep the money.
