Paying/Appealing a Ticket

Paying a Ticket

Fines may be paid in person or by mail, depending on the payment method. Cash, check, and credit card payments are accepted in the DPS office. Checks may be sent through the mail. Cash should not be sent through the mail. All payments must reference the violation notice number. Fines not paid within 15 working days double.

Appealing a Ticket

Anyone who receives a citation may file an appeal for reconsideration of the ticket. Appeal forms may be picked up in the Department of Public Safety, or the form can be found on-line at the DPS web site. The appeal must be submitted within seven calendar days from receipt of the violation notice. Appeals filed after seven calendar days are not accepted, and the fine must be paid. The fact that a violation is being appealed is not justification to violate parking and traffic regulations.

Appeals are NOT reviewed or considered when the following reasons are listed:

  • Lost ticket(s).
  • Parking illegally for just a short period of time.
  • Ignorance of regulations.
  • Inconvenience of permissible parking space.
  • Unread or misunderstood signage.
  • Financial hardship.

An appeal will not be considered if the driver has had a previous ticket(s) for the same offense.

If an appeal is not successful, the fine must be paid within 15 working days from receipt of the notification. Fines not paid within 15 working days double.(See Paying a Ticket above.)
