Traffic tickets

parking

Parking tickets or citations may be issued to the owner of a motor vehicle when the vehicle is parked illegally. For example, a parking ticket may be issued to the owner of a vehicle parked:

• in front of a fire hydrant

• in front of an expired parking meter

• in a no parking zone

• in a place that blocks a sidewalk

• too close to the curb

Parking tickets are nonmoving violations that usually have less serious fines and penalties than moving violations. For example, in many states a parking ticket may not cause penalty points to be added to your driver’s license or record.
