Parking Citation Amnesty Program Extended Through October

The Parking Citation Amnesty program will continue through October to encourage payment of parking citations at least 90 days past due. By participating in the program, you will save $15.00 with the late fee being waived. “As the initial program wrapped up at the end of September, we noticed some good momentum with people paying their old citations,” said Parking Manager Mark Lyons. “Also, our seasonal residents are beginning to return, so this will give them an opportunity to learn about the program and participate.”

To be eligible, your parking ticket must be at least 90 days past due. The City of Sarasota will forgive the $15 late fee. Payments must be received by Wednesday, October 31, 2012.

Since the program started in August, nearly 200 past due parking tickets were paid generating almost $10,000 in revenue. Also, over 5,000 website inquiries were conducted to determine whether an unpaid parking ticket was attached to a license tag. It’s easy to check your tag. Just enter your license plate number HERE.

There are several ways to pay a past due parking ticket:

Pay in person:
Parking Division
Sarasota Police Headquarters (first floor)
2099 Adams Lane

Pay online: www.Parking.SarasotaPD.org

Pay via mail:
Parking Division
2099 Adams Lane, Sarasota, FL 34237

Unpaid parking tickets dating back to 2002 total approximately $700,000. The Parking Division is making every effort to collect those funds.

A new parking ticket collection process started October 1, which includes:

  • License plate renewal restriction
  • Additional late penalties and fees
  • On-street vehicle immobilization (booting)
