Dispute a parking ticket

Alert iconNOTE: The Municipality of Clarington is taking additional health and safety measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community. All municipal buildings and recreation facilities are now closed to the public. To dispute a parking ticket during the closure, please call the Municipal Law Enforcement Office at 905-623-3379 ext. 2150 to arrange an appointment. Appointments will be conducted over the phone at the arranged time.

 

If you receive a parking ticket infraction, you have the option to schedule a First Attendance appointment to dispute your ticket within 15 days of issuance. This option is by appointment only and takes place at the Municipal Law Enforcement Office located at 2611 Trulls Road in Courtice. If you or your agent would like to meet with a First Attendance Administrator to dispute or discuss your ticket, you must book an appointment by calling 905-623-3379 ext. 2150.

If you have scheduled an appointment, do not pay your parking violation until the First Attendance Administrator makes a decision on your case. Payment made before a scheduled screening will void your review because your case will be considered resolved, and refunds will not be issued.

This option is a legislated process and is the only way to dispute your parking ticket infraction. Please contact the Municipal Law Enforcement office for any parking-related concerns or questions.
