Ticket to Citation Process

Plead Not Guilty

If you wish to plead not guilty you must wait to receive a citation.

Delinquent Violation Notice

Registration information is first electronically transmitted to Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT) for current owner name and address. Upon receiving the information from PENNDOT, a "Delinquent Violation Notice" is mailed by Complus Data to the registered owner. This letter is sent out within two weeks of receipt of the parking ticket.

Ticket to Citation

Once the "Delinquent Violation Notice" due date expires the ticket progresses to a citation within thirty days and is delivered to the appropriate District court. The citation is then sent to the registered owner by the District Judge.

Hearing Date

You must respond within ten working days of receipt of the citation, post the required collateral and a hearing date will be scheduled to contest the violation.


Be advised, if you plead guilty or are found guilty before the Magisterial District Judge additional costs will be assessed.
