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.

Requests can be submitted in person, or by mail to:
Brenda D. Forman, Clerk of Courts
P. O. Box 14610
- You will then receive a notice in the mail informing you of your hearing date. If you need to reschedule this date, you must complete an Affidavit of Defense Form. These are available for purchase for $1.55 USD from the Clerk of Court directly, or online via their website. This must be returned before your original hearing date.
- You must then attend your hearing on time, prepared with any additional evidence you wish to present.
- If you think there has been an issue in your hearing, and you have a further legal case to make, you can file an additional case with the Circuit Civil Court by filing a writ of certiorari with them. You must file this 30 days within your hearing date.
What Happens If I Don’t Pay My Ticket?
