  4. Getting your car booted and being responsible for its removal
  5. Your car being towed, and having to pay for its return
  6. Your registration being blocked
  7. Having your debt sent to collections

We heavily advise that you do not ignore your parking tickets! Instead, check out our chart below to see how you can either pay or appeal your parking ticket.

Things you need for your appeal:

  • Full name
  • Email address
  • University ID number (for students and employees)
  • Reason for your Appeal
  • Citation number and issuance date
  • License plate number + state vehicle was registered in

Even if you do not win, the parking hearing committee can decide to reduce your fine anyways. If your appeal is denied, the amount must be paid within 7 days of the denial.

Do I Have to Pay Tickets I Get in a Rental Car?

Yes, you do. Tickets received in a rental car are even more urgent to pay, as the rental company will pay them automatically on your behalf, often adding their own administrative fee. Therefore, if you wish to keep your fine as low as possible, we suggest you pay or appeal your fine as soon as you receive it. Make sure to send the company the receipt of the payment so they don’t automatically charge your card.
