Oakland offering free Saturday parking over holidays
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The city of Oakland is now doing more to help people avoid getting parking tickets. It's offering free parking for the next two Saturdays leading up to Christmas.
The goal is to encourage visitors to buy local. The offer is good within the posted limits at all parking meters, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Earlier this week the city of Oakland announced it was giving people a five-minute grace period after their meters expire.
