Violation Code Descriptions and Fines

Citation Penalties

Between 1981 and 2010 California voters approved the State Legislature to assess taxes on each paid parking citation. These taxes are used to fund Criminal Justice Facilities, Local Courthouse Construction, State Court Facilities, Trial Courts and other State and County needs. On July 1, 2015, citation penalties were increased to include these fees.
