Parking Tickets

Parking tickets are issued for violating City of Lakewood parking ordinances and do not carry penalty points on your driver’s license. The tickets, which are placed on the windshield of a vehicle, will cite the specific offense(s) violated, identify the amount(s) that must be paid and the date and location of the violation.

Payment is due 30 calendar days from the date of violation, and it is a plea of guilty to the original charge(s). By paying the fine rather than appearing in court, you give up all legal rights to which you are entitled and your appearance will be waived. Instructions are on the back of the parking ticket and envelope.

To contest a parking ticket, appear at the Violations Bureau counter at 8:15 a.m., Monday through Thursday.

Pay by Mail

Parking Lot
Please make check or money order payable to the City of Lakewood for the total amount due, indicated by adding all fines for the violation(s) checked on the ticket. Insert your check or money order in the envelope provided with your ticket. To ensure proper credit, write your ticket number on your check or money order. Please keep a copy for your records. Do not send cash.
