This article was archived on 6/18/2022

Tulsa Municipal Court is providing two amnesty sessions for citizens who have outstanding citations for parking and traffic violations.  

The amnesty sessions fall in line with the Resilient Tulsa Strategy, which helps equip all Tulsans with resources to overcome barriers and thrive. For more information about Municipal Courts and upcoming amnesty opportunities, visit Municipal Courts Online.

Parking Amnesty, June 6 - June 10, 2022 
The first amnesty session will be limited to parking tickets. Currently, the City has 82,000  unpaid parking citations.

During the parking amnesty period, the vehicle owner or driver will be allowed to pay the preset parking fine at Tulsa City Hall or Tulsa Municipal Court without late fees or warrant fees. If unable to pay citation(s) in full, a request can be made to see a judge to setup a payment plan; identification is needed.

Individuals can request to see a judge by visiting the Municipal Courts Office, Court Records, Room 228, between 8-10 a.m. daily, which will grant individuals the opportunity to get added to a docket to setup a payment plan. 

Moving Violation Amnesty, June 13 – June 17, 2022 
The second amnesty session will be limited to traffic and non-parking violations. The City currently has 108,000 citations in warrant status.

During this amnesty period, individuals will be allowed to pay their citations in full without any late fees or warrant fees directly with a cashier. If unable to pay fines in full, individuals can see a Judge to set up a payment plan. A dedicated judge will be available at Municipal Court from 8-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. during this amnesty week. 

If an individual received a citation for no/expired driver’s license, no/expired tag, or no/expired insurance, they should bring proof of current, active status to be considered for a low-or-no cost dismissal. If a fine was assessed by a judge and an individual failed to pay the fine, they will need to see a judge.

You can pay in person at the two below locations. If you need to see a judge, that must be done in Municipal Court at 600 Civic Center. 

Municipal Court, 600 Civic Center, 2nd floor 

City Hall, 175 E 2nd St. 

For those who cannot afford to pay citations, they can reach out to the Financial Empowerment Center. This no cost, one-on-one financial counseling is provided by the City of Tulsa and Goodwill Industries of Tulsa to anyone, regardless of income. Call (918) 802-7279 to set up an appointment.
