Parking Odeme: How to Avoid Parking Fines and Hassles
If you receive a parking or transit citation you must pay or protest the citation by the due date, or you will be subject to late fees and collections fees. Vehicles with five or more parking citations will be subject to booting and/or towing. Do not pay a citation if you wish to protest it.
Delinquent parking citations will be transmitted to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and you will be required to pay the balance in order to renew your vehicle registration. Citation payments made directly to the DMV will take up to eight (8) weeks to be received by SFMTA.
