Do I Have to Pay a Ticket from Broward County?

You are obligated to take action on a parking ticket received from a city, institution, or private parking company. Broward County is particularly strict, and requires you to take action on your ticket within 10 days of ticket issuance. These actions can be:

  • Pay (detailed in the chart immediately below)
  • Appeal (detailed in the section further below)

If you choose to ignore your tickets, or do not take action within the required period, your fines can increase or you can face other penalties. Most often, your fine will increase every couple weeks.
