The first step in resolving an on-street parking ticket is to request an administrative review. PARK Roanoke will gladly review any issues concerning an on-street parking ticket you may wish to appeal. Please complete and mail the Citation Appeal Form within 10 calendar days of the date of the ticket stating the ticket number, your name, telephone number, and address as well as reasons why you feel the ticket was issued in error. We will review the matter and inform you of the outcome, usually within 3 – 5 business days. Or you may complete an On-Line Appeal Form which will submit your appeal electronically to our office.
Following this review, Parking Ticket appeals may also be handled through General District Court. Please note that tickets may not be appealed to Court after 90 calendar days from the date of the original ticket.
If the determination is made through the administrative review that the ticket would need to be heard in General District Court, you will be asked to furnish your name and current address, telephone number, ticket number, and date of issuance. A witness subpoena will be issued and sent to General District Court to be served. The subpoena will notify you of the date and time of the court hearing. Please be advised that if a parking ticket is appealed in court and if you are found guilty, court costs may be added increasing the total amount due. Tickets older than 90 days may not be appealed to court. Note: A witness subpoena will be issued to the legal owner of the vehicle if a driver who received the ticket was someone other than the owner.
Information on the status of a ticket appealed to the City of Roanoke’s General District Court is available online.
