Parking and Automated Enforcement

District Court in Phase V Status

At this time the District Court is in Phase V Status. All Speed and Red Light hearings are being heard. Due to COVID-19, we have a large backlog so it may take time before you receive a hearing date.

You can choose to pay or request an appeal for parking, red light and speed camera tickets by mail, in person or online. 

The Parking and Automated Enforcement section enforces County regulations—which have been specifically designed to promote safety on County roads, streets and alleyways—expedites traffic flow and promotes the proper use of parking spaces.

Request a Hearing

To request a hearing for a speed or red light citation, you must call 410-887-2777 within 40 days of the issue date.

Pay or Appeal Tickets

Every effort is made to assure the public that payment of a violation is an easy and efficient process.


VR-119 Flag Release Form

Vehicle owners can obtain this MVA form from the Violation Payment Office after payment of all outstanding parking, red light or speed violations. The form serves as proof to the MVA that the vehicle owner has satisfied the delinquent violations and releases any flag on the owner’s registration renewal application. How quickly the release can be issued depends on the payment type:

Payment TypeRelease Issued
Cash or Money OrderSame Business Day
Credit or Debit CardNext Business Day
Check15 Business Days

If you do not know your violation number, call 410-887-8154 or email to retrieve it. You must provide the vehicle registration number with the request.

Late Fees and Penalties

Completion of a payment transaction is contingent upon both the authorization of payment of the applicable credit or debit card company and receipt of your payment by Baltimore County. 

Fee TypeAmount
Parking Violation Not Paid Within 15 Days of Issuance$10 per unpaid month or fraction thereof
County-Issued Flag Warning Letter Fee$15
Dishonored Check Fee (Under § 15-802 of the Commercial Law Article)$35
Tickets Unpaid for 60 Days (MVA Administrative Fee)$30

In the event your payment is not processed, your liability shall remain outstanding and unpaid, and late fees and applicable penalties will continue to accrue. We will credit your payment on the date we receive the electronic payment from your credit or debit card company. 

Nonpayment Lawsuits

If you are being sued by the Director of Budget and Finance for the nonpayment of a parking or automated enforcement ticket, call 410-887-8154 to speak with a representative. A vehicle is subject to impoundment if it has three parking tickets that are more than 30 days past due. Unpaid violations will result in collection activity being initiated with the District Court of Maryland. 

Other Violations

Persons receiving a ticket for the following should review the information on the back of the ticket and proceed accordingly.

  • School Zone Speed Monitoring System Violation—For questions, call 1-866-790-4111.
