The Department of Revenue announced today that it will begin including pictures of certain parking ticket violations in notices mailed to registered owners. Parking tickets issued by the Department of Revenue will be supported by photos showing the violations.

The initial enforcement will include violations issued for missing, expired, or improperly displayed license plates, city stickers, and residential parking permits. The photographs will be taken by camera-enabled handheld ticket issuance devices, and will be recorded at the time the tickets are issued.

"No one likes to get parking tickets," said Revenue Director Bea Reyna-Hickey. "However, when motorists are provided strong evidence that a violation occurred, they can either promptly pay or contest the ticket."

"It's been our experience that sometimes well-meaning people who never intended to violate the law, need to see this reminder," she added.

"It's important that people adhere to our parking laws if we're to provide every neighborhood with adequate parking and protect their safety."
