What Happens If I Ignore My Parking Tickets?

While it may be tempting to ignore your parking tickets and deal with them later, it’s never as good of an idea as you may think. Parking fines often increase weekly upon non-payment and can start doubling at some increments. Other penalties for not paying your citations may include:

  • Towing
  • Your car can get booted, and you’ll have to call the city and pay your fines to get the boot removed
  • Your car can get towed, and you’ll have to pay extra fees to get it back
  • Your car can be seized by the state (in extreme cases) and auctioned off
  • Your case can get sent to a collection agency
  • The fine can be deducted from your tax refund
  • You can end up in court
  • Your credit score can go down

Do I Need a Lawyer to Dispute a Parking Citation For UC Santa Barbara?

In Santa Barbara, as with most of the US, fees can range from 100$ to over $1000, which can greatly exceed the actual amount ticketed. It’s not worth your time and money to consult a lawyer, and our AI Consumer Champion is designed to cut down on the difficulty of cutting through the bureaucratic language surrounding dispute cases.

With DoNotPay, this process can be much faster!

Do I Have To Pay Tickets I Get In A Rental Car?

Rental car fines may seem like they cannot be traced to you, but the rental company will be charged instead. As they have your credit card information on file, you will likely end up with increased fees as the car agency will charge you for any services they incurred on your behalf (as is their right), any late fees added to your fine, and their own administrative fees. Check out Hertz’s traffic fine procedure here to see how it works.

Therefore if you leave these tickets unpaid, you’re liable for:

  1. The original ticket amount and any late fees (USCB fines increase by $48 after 36 days!)
  2. Administrative fees from the rental company
  3. Any fees incurred on your behalf by the company (up to their discretion)

Please note: If US Santa Barbara parking fines are not paid or appealed within 36 days of receiving them, an additional charge of $48 will be added. If your car is impounded, there will be an additional fee of $60 added.
