You don’t have to be the registered owner of the vehicle to make a parking ticket or camera violation payment. Anyone can pay your violations for you.
Parking Ticket and Camera Violation fines cannot be changed. All payments should be submitted directly to the Department of Finance. If someone offers to get you a discount or reduction on your tickets in exchange for paying them, it is a scam. Submitting a payment to the scammer will result in the ticket being reinstated and could result in a criminal investigation. If you cannot afford to pay the full amount of the tickets, DOF offers payment plans.
- Bus lane camera: Fines start at $50
- Red light camera: $50
- Speed camera: $50
Note: if the NYPD issued you a bus lane violation that is yellow, it is a moving violation and the fine is $150. For more information about moving violations, go to the Traffic Ticket page.
The amount you owe depends on the violation code and where in the City you parked. The violation code is located on the front of the ticket. You can get information about the code on your parking ticket, what it means, and how much each type of parking violation costs.
You have 30 days from the date of the parking ticket or camera Notice of Liability (NOL) to pay the fine or request a hearing. After 30 days, penalties and interest will begin to be added. If the violations go into judgment, additional enforcement actions may be taken.
Twenty days after a parking ticket is issued or the date of the NOL, the Department of Finance (DOF) will send a Pre-Penalty Notice of Unpaid Violation to the address on file at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for the registered owner of the vehicle. This letter reminds owners about an outstanding violation on a plate registered to them and gives instructions on how to pay or request a hearing. Make sure to keep your address up to date with the DMV to ensure that you receive these notices in the future.
- After 30 days, an additional $10 is added to the fine amount.
- After 60 days, an additional $20 is added to the fine and first penalty.
- After 90 days, an additional $30 is added to the fine and both penalties.
- After about 100 days, the violation is entered into judgment and 9% simple interest per year is then added to the total amount due. Each month, one-twelfth of the 9% of the unpaid judgment is added to the amount due, until the outstanding amount is paid.
- After 30 days, a $25 penalty will be added.
- After 65 days, a Final Notice is mailed.
- After about 75 days, the violation is entered into judgment and 9% simple interest per year is then added to the total amount due. Each month, one-twelfth of the 9% of the unpaid judgment is added to the amount due, until the outstanding amount is paid.
If you believe you shouldn’t have been charged interest or were charged an incorrect amount of interest, you can request a penalty adjustment.
