Can a parking ticket go to collection?

I had a parking ticket turned over to a collection agency.


Answer by  Manda (1103)

Yes, parking tickets can be handed over to a collection agency. Any company or organization can contract with a collections agency to recoup their payments.

One should pay all traffic tickets as soon as possible if one is guilty, because cities, states, etc may turn them to collection agencies, which will affect your credit rating.

Yes, a parking ticket can go to a collection agency. However, cities will often wait over a year before doing so. Look into fine forgiveness times offered by municipalities, when extra fees and penalties will be waived. And if you have proof of economic hardship or disability, the fines can be reduced.
