If you do not pay a parking ticket

Unpaid parking tickets are referred to a collection agency 45 days after the ticket was issued. This can impact your credit rating.

If you don't pay a parking ticket, you also risk your car being impounded for future parking violations registered to the same vehicle.

If you receive a notice for a paid ticket

If you have paid your parking ticket but receive a notice or summons:

  • Your payment may have been applied to another ticket for the same vehicle
  • You may have paid the discounted amount after the 14 day deadline and owe the remaining amount.

You can call 250-755-4422 for help.
