Ticket Information

201 Poplar LL-80 Memphis, TN

(901) 636-3400

Memphis police officers issue three different types of tickets: citationssummons, and ordinances.

citation is a parking ticket that should be paid 15 days after issuance. If the ticket is not paid within 15 days after receipt, the violator must appear in court on the scheduled court date on the bottom of the ticket and additional costs may be assessed. Any vehicle that has three or more unpaid citations issued against it is subject to booting, towing, and/or impoundment until all the tickets (citations and summons) are paid for that vehicle. Late fees are assessed on unpaid citations. Any citation ticket unpaid 60 days after the issue date will incur a $20 late fee. If the ticket remains unpaid 90 days after the issue date it will incur an additional $40 late fee for a total of $60 in late fees as of the 90th day.

summons is a ticket issued by an officer to a violator and signed by the violator. Unless the ticket is marked mandatory. If the ticket is not paid within 10 days of the court date, the violator must appear in court on the scheduled court date on the bottom of the ticket and additional costs may be assessed. Failure to appear in court will result in a default judgment being taken against the violator. Failure to pay a default judgment within 30 days may result in the suspension of the violator’s driver’s license. Ticket prices may be obtained by calling the Traffic Violations Bureau at (901) 636-3400, by email at [email protected], or by scrolling down.
