Here's something to think about before you skip the meter because you're only running inside somewhere for 10 minutes. Our partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal have crunched the numbers and determined the 20 blocks you're most likely to get a parking ticket in the city.

The publication tallied the total amount of parking tickets issued in the city since 2012. Quick snapshot? Be extra careful in the east side of the city and downtown, especially when it comes to busy nightlife areas and the business core.
