You will then be assigned a future court hearing time and date. Please bring the actual citation, your driver's license and disabled permit (if applicable) to:

If the citation is still unpaid after 30 calendar days from the date of issuance, an additional late fee of $15.00 is added, for a total of $25.00 in late fees. Should further collection efforts be necessary, a collection fee equal to 40 percent of the total due (citation and late fees) will be added to the total.

J Invoices (J Citations)
'J' Invoices are written in city-owned lots and are issued when the vehicle is left in the lot after the lot is closed. These invoices are only for the hourly parking fee and their purpose is to provide a mechanism for payment. If the spitter ticket is not provided or if the invoice is not paid within thirty calendar days of issuance, the full daily rate of $6.96 is due. They also accrue late charges and collection fees as indicated above.

  • Failure to pay a violation number eight (8), thirteen (13), or fourteen (14) within 20 calendar days.

  • One violation fourteen (14), Altered Tag. When this violation is present, the vehicle may be booted on the spot.
  • To have the immobilization device removed from your vehicle, bring either cash, a cashier's check, a money order, or a PIN-based debit card for payment in the amount of the citations due plus the removal fee of $50.00 to the nearest Duval County Tax Collector's Office.
