What happens if I do not answer a parking citation?
  • $10 late fees are applied to unanswered citations after 10, 20, and 30 days.  A citation may accrue a maximum of $30 in late fees. Late fees do not accrue while a citation is under appeal. If the appeal is denied, late fee escalation resumes once a judgment is given.
  • The registered owner of the vehicle will receive notice of unanswered citations after 30 days.
  • Unanswered citations will be transferred to Citation Collection Services, LLC after 90 days.  A collection fee will be added on top of the face value of the citation and any accrued late fees.

Three (3) or more unanswered citations may hinder your ability to renew your registration plate with the Michigan Secretary of State and may result in the impoundment of your vehicle without further notice.
