  • What does the Parking Ticket System allow me to do?

    The Parking Ticket System allows you to perform web inquiries and to pay parking citations. Your citation number can be located on the original citation or on the Notice of Illegal Parking. Enter the citation number or driver’s license number and then click on "Search." You do not need to enter the leading zero’s or alpha characters before the citation number.

  • What if I don't have my citation number?

    This site will also allow you to perform searches by driver’s license number. If you cannot view your citation, you can call Data Ticket Customer Service at 800-989-2058 between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday – Friday, excluding holidays.

  • Why isn't my parking citation in the system?

    If you just received your citation, unfortunately you will not be able to pay on the WEB until it is downloaded to the site. Automated citations are typically uploaded to the system daily, manual citations may take 7-14 days.

Automated citations are typically uploaded to the system daily, manual citations may take 7-14 days.

  • Why is more than one parking citation displayed? Do I have to pay them all?

    If other citations exist on the same vehicle (same license plate, same owner) as the primary citation, they will be displayed as a courtesy. You may choose to pay any or all of the parking citations by clicking the box next to each citation you want to pay.

  • How does the Online Parking Ticket System work?

    Once you have selected the citation(s) to be paid by placing a check in the box next to the citation number, click on "Complete Transaction” and you will be asked for your credit/debit card information. After entering your credit card information, verify that the information you entered is correct. If the information is correct click on "Pay Citation by Credit/Debit Card." Your credit card information will be validated, and the amount of the charge will be submitted. If the credit card information is valid and approval is received for the amount you are paying, your credit card company will issue an approval to the site. The payment will be immediately applied to the citation, and you will see the charge on your next credit card statement. You should print the online receipt for you records, or you can also receive an email receipt if you enter an email address.

  • Is it secure?

    This site uses 128-bit encryption, which is the highest level of encryption available. This is the same security used on all web payment applications. This site does not store any information about your credit card. Once an approval or rejection is received, the information is purged from our system.

  • What is encryption?

    Encryption is the scrambling of information for transmission back and forth between two points. A key is required to decode the information. When you inquire about your parking citation, the request is sent encrypted to the Online Payment System. The Online Payment System then decodes your request for information and sends it back to your computer in an encrypted format. When you receive it, your information is decoded so that you can read it. Because your parking citation information is being transmitted between your computer and the Online Payment System, encryption protects your information so it cannot be intercepted and read by a third party.

  • What is 128-bit encryption?

    There are basically two types of encryption: High and Standard. The difference between these types of encryption is the strength of capability. A High (128-bit) encryption is exponentially more powerful than a Standard (40 or 56-bit) encryption. With 40-bit encryption, there are billions of possible keys to decipher the coded information, and only one of them works. Someone intercepting the information would have to find the right key - a nearly impossible task. With 128-bit encryption, there are 300 billion trillion times as many keys as with 40-bit encryption. It is virtually impossible for an unauthorized party to find the right key, even if they are equipped with the best computers. The Online Payment System uses the highest level of encryption (128-bit) to ensure your online transmissions are secure.

  • What if I get a message the system is not available?

    If you receive a message that the system is unavailable, it will be available within 15 to 30 minutes. Sometimes the site may not be available for inquiries or processing.
