Parking Adjudication FAQ's 


Q: I have a permit but just forgot to display it, can't you just void this 
     citation?

 A: No. Parking Adjudication must adhere to California law and process parking citations in a legal manner.

 Q: I appealed my citation 3 weeks ago; when will I know the outcome?

 A: This process usually takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete. The Citation Review Internal Results letter will be mailed to you at the address you provide.

 Q: I appealed my parking citation, should I also pay the penalty 
     amount?

 A: Not yet. If you have appealed a parking violation, the parking violation penalty is suspended until you receive the disposition results of the appeal/administrative review.

 Q: Will late fees be attached to the penalty amount on my parking 
      citation if it is still in the appeal process?

 A: No. Late fees are only attached if the penalty amount is not paid within the time allotted. If you received your appeal/administrative disposition results and it was upheld, a late fee will be placed on the penalty amount after 21 calendar days from the date of this notification.

 Q: I have parking citations attached to my DMV registration, how can I 
     pay these?

 A: You can pay for the parking citations with your DMV registration or at Parking Adjudication. Parking Adjudication will immediately remove the violations from the DMV registration upon receipt of payment.

 Q: I have a CSU hold for parking citations, can you just remove the hold
     and I will pay for the citations later?

 A: No. It is the policy of the University not to remove holds until the penalty amount has been paid in full.

 Q: I received a parking citation but I never received the "Notice of
     Delinquent Parking Violation". Why did I not receive this notice?

 A: The Notice of Delinquent Parking Violation is mailed to the registered owner's address that is on file with the DMV. It is the registered owner's responsibility to update the DMV with a current mailing address.

 Q: What is the difference between a parking violation and a parking
      citation?

 A: Simply put, a violation is the "offense" of violating a parking rule and regulation. A citation is the actual notice that is placed on the vehicle notifying the person in charge of the vehicle that a violation has occurred.
