Are there any special parking programs?
Occasionally the Parking Services Division may run special programs. One of those programs is Toys for Tickets. Any driver issued a non-public safety parking ticket in the city of Las Vegas may choose to resolve the ticket by providing a non-violent, unwrapped toy of equal or greater value than the ticket fine, to the Parking Services Office. To participate, drivers must bring the parking ticket, the unwrapped toy as well as a receipt for the toy. The eligible dates of this program will vary and will be listed as the program is approved.
How do I get a boot removed?
All citations associated with the vehicle that has been booted must be paid in full, including a $75 boot fee, before the boot will be removed. You have the right to appeal only the validity of the vehicle’s placement on the boot eligibility list. All fees must be paid in full for the boot to be removed while you await the hearing. The hearing officer will only be deciding on whether or not the vehicle in question was eligible for immobilization. If the hearing officer decides for your case, you will be refunded the $75 boot fee.
Cash, certified funds or MasterCard, VISA or Discover credit card payments will be accepted with signed authorization from the cardholder. No personal or business checks.
If your car has been towed as a result of a boot and payment has been made, parking services will provide the tow company the release notification to allow you to get the car from the impound yard. Proof of ownership, current registration or a temporary moving permit will be required by the tow yard in order to release the vehicle along with the letter from parking services.
How do I request a time payment installment plan?

Time payment installment plans are available to put a citation on hold at its current amount due, avoid the assessment of future penalties and allow you the ability to pay in monthly installments. Plans can now be paid online.

  • Installment plans require an agreement to be signed along with a copy of a photo ID.
  • Installment plans have no grace period once they are set up. Defaults in monthly installments will result in a cancellation of the agreement and any penalties that would have been assessed will be added back onto the citation.
  • $25 non-­refundable administrative set­up fee is due upon setting up the installment plan.
  • A Time Payment Application can be found at the top of this page.
  • For more information, contact our office by phone at 702-229-4700.

How do fines escalate on parking citations?
Fines are due within 30 days from the date of issue. If the payment is not paid in full by the 30 days, the ticket will assess the first penalty, (see fine/fees schedule). If the ticket is not paid in full including the penalty by 45 days from the date of issue, the ticket will assess the second penalty. Example: $20 fine, if paid after 30 days $30 is due, if paid after 45 days $40 is due.
