I Can't Pay My Ticket In Full

If you are unable to pay your ticket in full, visit the Seattle Municipal Court before the payment due date to arrange a Time Payment Plan. Time Payment Plans include a $10 administrative fee and most require a minimum monthly payment of $50.

If you are on public assistance, you may qualify for a lower monthly payment of $25 or you may request community service instead of paying the fine. Community service hours are credited at a rate equal to Seattle's minimum wage. Proof of public assistance is required.

Examples of Proof of Public Assistance:

  • Social Security Disability Income (SSDI)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Apple Health (Medicaid)
  • Refugee Assistance
  • General Assistance Unemployable (GAU)
  • Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF)
  • WIC Nutrition
  • Pregnant Women Assistance
  • Basic Food (award notice required - EBT cards are not accepted)

Four or More Unpaid Parking Tickets

If you have four or more unpaid parking tickets, your vehicle may be:

  • immobilized with a boot, a wheel-locking device. A boot may be placed on your vehicle whether it is legally or illegally parked.
  • towed or impounded in accordance with the City of Seattle Scofflaw Ordinance.
