How do I contest a parking ticket?

You can request a hearing in person or contest online ("contest by mail"). You will need your citation number and either your License Plate Number or VIN.

All parking ticket fees are determined by the Spokane Municipal Code, Section 08.02.083E. Once an officer writes a ticket, it becomes the responsibility of Spokane Municipal Court.

Please note, a $25 late fee is added if the ticket is unpaid after 15 days. If you have four or more unpaid parking tickets, you are put on a scofflaw list and your vehicle will get the boot. Once booted, unless tickets and fees are paid within 48 hours, your vehicle will be towed.
