Please Note: 
California Vehicle Code Sections 5200 and 5204(a) require a vehicle inspection and evidence of violation correction. Evidence of correction may be obtained at any police agency during regular business hours. Once an employee of the police agency sees that the violation is corrected, he or she will sign the back of your parking citation as evidence of correction. If corrected, bail on these violations is reduced to $10.00 per violation. Valid proof of each correction and $10.00 per corrected violation must be received within 21 days of the citation date or penalties will accrue.

Please Note: Section 5204(a) requires that the registration tabs be physically attached to your rear license plate. Proof of a valid vehicle registration card will not serve as a correction for this section.

An Administrative Review Process is available if you would like to dispute your citation(s). Questions regarding payment of parking citation(s), or the Administrative Review Process, may be directed to Data Ticket Inc. at (800) 989-2058.
