A picture is worth a thousand words, so the Department of Public Works is posting images of parking tickets and the violations that led to tickets being issued by DPW. The images are being posted so motorists will better understand why tickets are issued. To see the image(s), enter the ticket number, select the state where the vehicle is registered, then enter the license plate number of the vehicle issued the ticket. (The program is not case-sensitive.) Then click "Search".
