Parking Citations

City and State parking ordinances were created to ensure the safety of visitors and residents alike, and as such will be strictly enforced within the City of Inglewood.

What happens when you violate a parking law?

Section 21113(a) of the California Vehicle Code authorizes the City of Inglewood to issue parking citations and establish penalty amounts. If you park illegally and receive a citation, read carefully and follow all instructions on the citation. Failure to submit payment within the required time may result in a penalty being added to the original fine and a hold being placed against your vehicle registration, or the vehicle may be towed.
