Parking citations are issued by the City of Tulsa against vehicles for violations of the parking ordinances contained within the Tulsa Revised Ordinances. Upon issuance of a parking citation against a vehicle owned by you, you may pay the fine indicated on the face of the citation within ten (10) days from the date of issuance (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and City Holidays). You may plead not guilty, in person, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the Municipal Court, 600 Civic Center, Room 228, Tulsa, OK, 74103, by posting a cash bond equal to the fine amount indicated on the face of the citation plus court costs within ten (10) days of the date of issuance (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and City Holidays). In the event you fail to either timely pay the fine or timely plead not guilty and post the necessary cash bond, you will incur late fees that must be paid in addition to the fine indicated on the face of the citation.
When a vehicle has two (2) or more outstanding parking citations, the Clerk of the Municipal Court shall notify in writing the registered owner of such vehicle at the address listed on the vehicle's state registration records advising that a hearing will be held on a date certain to determine the vehicle a public nuisance as provided by City ordinance and to order impoundment. After the hearing held on a date certain, a Municipal Judge of the City of Tulsa may declare the vehicle a public nuisance and order the vehicle impounded. Impoundment shall be defined as the affixing of a wheel boot that restricts the vehicle's movement and/or the towing of the vehicle.
Once the vehicle has been declared a public nuisance and a Municipal Judge has authorized impoundment, the vehicle is placed on the City's Vehicle Tow List if the citations remain unpaid or outstanding. A vehicle appearing on the Tow List may be towed or have a disabling boot placed on it at any time. Additional charges for towing, storage, and/or booting may be required to be paid in addition to the amount of outstanding parking citations and late fees before a vehicle will be released to its owner.
