General Parking Ticket Information
Parking Ticket ExampleThese tickets illustrate the two types of parking citations which may be issued by City of Eugene Parking Services Officers or City of Eugene Police Officers.

You may access the parking computer database to obtain information about your outstanding and paid parking citations. The on-line parking ticket information is accessed by entering your vehicle license plate number or your parking ticket number.

The data in the computer system is reflective of information in the database at that moment. Parking tickets issued by enforcement agencies are not immediately received by the court and may not be loaded into the database. There is no guarantee that the computer database includes all outstanding citations from enforcement agencies. It is your responsibility to follow-up with the court to verify all outstanding parking tickets are paid in full. 

Parking TicketHow To Resolve a Ticket
The following options are available to resolve a parking ticket: 
  • Pay the bail and appear at Parking Court. Parking Court is held on the second Thursday of each month (excluding holidays) at 8:30 a.m. in Eugene Municipal Court. If you choose to appear at court, please bring the ticket or a copy of the ticket with you.
  • Pay the bail and plead not guilty. You will receive a trial notice from the court with the scheduled date and time of the trial.
  • Pay the bail and submit a written explanation. The amount of bail must be paid in full for the explanation to be considered. If a written explanation is submitted, the right to a court hearing or appeal is waived, and the court's decision is final. You may send your written explanation by letter or complete the Parking Ticket Review form. This form is also available at the Eugene Municipal Court. If you wish to be notified of the court's ruling, a self-addressed, stamped envelope must be attached to your written explanation.
  • Pay the bail due within 30 calendar days from the date of issue.

If your case is dismissed, you are found not guilty or the fine is reduced, a refund check will be mailed to you at the address you provide to the court.

The bail will double if the original bail is not paid in full within 30 calendar days of the date of issue. A vehicle may be booted when $40.00 or more in outstanding fines is 30 days or more past due. If you fail to meet your financial obligation your account may be referred to an external collection agency.
