Last three days to avoid collections fees and interest on tickets

Seattle Municipal Courts Collection Reduction Program ends this Friday, July 15. The waiver of collections fees and interest has enabled individuals to pay their outstanding balances. For many the result is removal from the scofflaw list or clearing a hold on their driver's license.

Interest and collections fees on parking tickets and infractions will be waived if tickets are paid in full. This does not apply to those entering into a time payment plan. The Court accepts cash, checks, credit and debit cards, and money orders for payment of tickets. The program is designed to offer people with unpaid infractions in collections a significant savings if they pay off their tickets. The Court also encourages people to pay their unpaid parking tickets to avoid having their car booted. Vehicles with four or more unpaid parking tickets in collections are eligible to be booted. The collections reduction opportunity will not apply to booted vehicles.

To see if you have unpaid parking tickets and to pay them, go to www.seattle.gov/scofflaw (English) or call (206) 684-5600 (interpretation may be available). Payment can also be made in person at The Seattle Municipal Court at 600 Fifth Avenue in downtown Seattle.

The court will be open Wednesday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and Thursday and Friday from 8:00 a.m. -7:00 p.m.
