Pay a Parking Ticket
Due to a recent U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals that ruled chalking tires a violation of the 4th Amendment, the Virginia Police Department will begin using a new electronic handheld parking citation device on 11-01-2019.
The handheld machine generates the ticket immediately with a picture of the vehicle and prints it on a piece of polyvinyl paper that is placed on the vehicle in violation. The parking tickets will have a different look and be visibly smaller than the older ones.
However, do not be surprised if you occasionally see a handwritten citation placed on your vehicle. The police officers will still have the option to write violations when necessary.
Effective October 1, the parking violations were modified as shown below:
FEES – $20.00 FEES-$15.00
Expired Meter Parked on a Sidewalk
Parked Against Traffic Obstructing Street/Driveway
Parked in Alley Double Parked
Overtime Parking Parked Fire Hydrant Zone
No Parking 3AM to 6AM Parked in Prohibited Zone
Allowing Motor to Run Unattended Parked Too Close to Intersection
Other Calendar Parking
If any parking ticket fee or fine is not paid after twenty (20) days, an additional fee of $40.00 will be added to the initial fine or fee.
A friendly reminder that under Virginia City Ordinance 9.99 & 9.13; after a third or subsequent parking violation, unpaid parking citations, within a 12-month period, the police department can tow and impound a vehicle. The vehicle owner is then responsible for tow fees and a $20 per day storage fee.
