Coronavirus (COVID-19) Alert

There will be no in-person hearings for parking tickets or camera violations between March 22, 2020, and August 5, 2020. You can still have a hearing by mail or an online hearing if you wish.  

No additional penalties will be added to any unpaid non-judgment parking ticket or camera violation between March 22 and August 5, 2020. Tickets that were in judgment prior to March 22, 2020, will continue to incur interest.

If you wish to have an in-person hearing, please check the DOF website or call 311 on or after August 5, 2020, to confirm if in-person hearings have resumed.

Any New Yorker under isolation who has received a ticket can request a hearing with the Department of Finance and should provide medical documentation or testimony, which will be taken into consideration when their case is reviewed. 

If you own or operate a commercial vehicle and have 10 or more parking or camera violations, you can dispute them all at one time instead of having hearings for each ticket separately. You must dispute the violations with the Department of Finance's Commercial Adjudication Unit by mail or in person at their office.

To request a hearing by mail, you must include:

  • A letter explaining why you are fighting the violations
  • Copies of the tickets or Notices of Liability (NOL) or the ticket or NOL numbers
  • Copies of all available evidence
