Coronavirus (COVID-19) Alert

In-person hearings for parking tickets and camera violations have resumed on October 13, 2020. However, in-person parking ticket and camera violation hearings for commercial vehicles remain suspended at this time.

As of January 11, 2021, penalties will be added to camera violations 30 days after the date of the notice of liability. No penalties were assessed between March 22, 2020 and January 11, 2021.  The Department of Finance is mailing letters to vehicle owners with outstanding camera violations. You will have 30 days from the date on the letter to pay or dispute the violation.

No additional penalties will be added to any unpaid non-judgment parking ticket between March 22 until further notice. Tickets that were in judgment prior to March 22, 2020, will continue to incur interest.

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
