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.
Payments on outstanding parking citations may be made at:
