Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"
Q. Hello, officer. I got a parking ticket but am in such serious financial straits that I can't really handle the fine and will undoubtedly be late on it. I've been doing some searching and can't seem to determine how much time I have before what penalties I potentially face come into effect, other than the late fee and waiving the right to challenge it (what's printed on the citation). I understand that it must be paid and will do so as soon as I am able, but I need all the information so I can budget accordingly and get it done as soon as possible while keeping up with my other bills and not, you know, risking jail. I suppose my question is, what levels of penalty does a late parking ticket payment escalate to and when after the ticket?
