Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I pay a parking citation? Parking citations may be paid by mail or in person at Town Hall, 18 Court Street, Warrenton, VA 20186. You may also pay a parking citation online through MyTown. If parking citations are not paid within the specified time they are subject to a penalty fee.
How do I contest a parking citation? Parking citations may be contested by appearing at the Warrenton Police Department during regular business hours. At that time a date will be scheduled in General District Court for the case to be heard. The contestant will be given a written notice of the court date.
What happens when the citation is not paid or contested? When a citation has not been paid or contested within the allotted time a letter is sent to all owners of the vehicle which received the citation. If the citation is still not dealt with, a Summons is issued by the Magistrate to all owners of the vehicle to appear in court.
Why did I receive a citation when I have a handicap permit? Temporary handicap permits to an individual and permanent license plates for a vehicle are issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles. Temporary permits must be displayed by hanging on the rear view mirror in plain view of the officer. Persons with valid handicap permits or license plates may park in any handicap maked parking space or at any space regulated by a time zone in excess of the posted time limit, up to four (4) hours maximum. Handicapped permits/license plates do not give authorization to park in fire lanes or other no parking zones.
