SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco's tightly regulated residential parking permits may soon be available to childcare providers, thanks to a group of local parents who say nanny parking is a safety issue for kids.

The San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Authority board of directors will vote Tuesday on whether to offer families one annual $98 permit for childcare purposes.

If approved, transportation officials say San Francisco would be the largest U.S. city to offer such a permit.

The parents behind the initiative say nannies are often forced to choose between racking up hefty fines or leaving children unattended every two hours to search for a new spot.

Critics say reducing parking-space turnover makes little sense in the country's second-most densely populated city.
