‘Collections Reduction Program’ extended

You’ve still got time to pay your outstanding parking tickets during Seattle Municipal Court’s “Collection Reduction Program.” The program, which allows people to pay parking tickets without interest and fees, has been extended through July 15th. Despite this extension, the new scofflaw program launches on Tuesday, July 5th. That means if you have four or more overdue, unpaid tickets, your car could get booted if parked on a city street.

From the scofflaw website:

  • Once booted, to get the vehicle released you will have 48 hours to pay all parking tickets, default penalties, interest, collections agency fees, and a boot fee.
  • If you do not pay within 48 hours (excluding weekends) of being booted, the vehicle may be towed and impounded. To release the vehicle from impound, you will need to pay all fees and fines, plus tow fees, per Seattle Municipal Code.
  • If your vehicle is not claimed from impound within 15 days, it may be sold at auction to help pay your debts.
  • To see if you have unpaid parking tickets and to pay them, click here, or call (206) 684-5600 (interpretation may be available). Payment can also be made in person at The Seattle Municipal Court at 600 Fifth Avenue in downtown Seattle, Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
