FOXBORO, MASS. (WPRI) - A new by-law approved in Massachusetts will force Patriots fans heading to Gillette Stadium to pay more for parking.
During game and event days, those who live near Gillette have been selling fans parking spots on their lawns for half the price of a commercially licensed lot.
Residents have been collecting money tax free and avoiding municipal fees as well.
But beginning September 16th, homeowners will no longer be able to cash in.
Commercial lot owners said it's a good by-law, because they have to pay for port-a-potties, a police detail and state and town licenses, while residents don't.
But residents argue the by-law is strictly about money.
Anyone who violates the new policy will face a $100 fine for each vehicle parked in violation.
