If you are issued a parking ticket, it will be placed on the vehicle at the time the violation is observed. Parking tickets can be handwritten or computer-printed.

Copies of printed tickets are usually available in the system within 5 business days. Copies of handwritten tickets can take 10 to 14 business days to be entered into the system, but could take longer. You can still pay or fight your violation even if it's not in the system.

If your vehicle is filmed driving, parking or standing in a bus lane or running a red light, you will be sent a Notice of Liability (NOL) in about 30 days. If your vehicle is filmed speeding in a school zone, you will get an NOL in about 14 days.

If your overweight truck is filmed on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway from the vicinity of Atlantic Avenue to Sands Street in Brooklyn, you will get an NOL in about 30 days.

NOLs include images of the observed violation.

If you lost or never received a parking ticket or NOL, you can get a copy.

Parking ticket copies are available:

Bus lane, red light, and speed camera violation NOL copies are only available by mail or at DOF Business Centers, but you can access violation information and review images and video online.
