Parking Citations
(aka: "Parking Ticket", "Parking Violation")

Upon receiving a parking citation/ticket, you must either pay or appeal the citation within twenty one (21) calendar days. Failure to do so will result in an increased fine and/or a DMV hold being placed on your vehicle registration; you will also lose the right to appeal your citation.

If you received a Parking Citation Notice in the mail, but did not own the vehicle at the time of the violation, complete the Declaration of Non-Ownership at: www.pticket.com/SantaRosa.

Paying a Citation

Citations/tickets may be paid on-line, by telephone, by mail or in-person.

  • By phone: (855) 532-3275
  • By mail: City of Santa Rosa, Parking Citations, P.O. Box 11113, San Jose, CA 95103-1113
  • In-Person: City Hall Annex, 90 Santa Rosa Avenue, Santa Rosa

Contesting a Citation

If you wish to contest a parking citation/ticket, you may do so within twenty-one (21) calendar days of the citation issue date. You can appeal your citation on-line at: www.pticket.com/SantaRosa, complete a Citation Review Form and submit by mail, or write a letter that contains the following information:

  • Name, mailing address, and daytime phone number
  • Citation number
  • Date of the Citation
  • Reason for contesting the citation
  • Supporting documentation, such as pictures, paid meter receipt, or placard ID card.

Mail the form and/or letter to the City of Santa Rosa, Parking Division, P.O. Box 11113, San Jose, CA 95103-1113. 

When your appeal is received, your citation will be placed on hold and submitted to the Citation Review Officer. No penalties will be assessed while your citation is being reviewed and a letter will be mailed to you once a decision has been made.
