AMARILLO -- The City of Amarillo with help from the Amarillo Police Department will soon start impounding vehicles with six or more parking citations.
Starting today the City will give license plate information, for vehicles that have six or more unpaid parking citations, available to the automated license plate reader in the City of Amarillo’s Parking Enforcement vehicle.
Beginning Tuesday October 15, when a vehicle with six or more parking citations is detected, Parking Enforcement will notify the Amarillo Police Department. Officers will verify the information and have the vehicle impounded.
The towing and subsequent impound costs are at the owner’s expense. The towing is authorized by city ordinance with an order issued by the City of Amarillo Municipal Court. The vehicle will be released to the owner when both impound costs and parking citations are paid or otherwise disposed of.
You can view outstanding parking citations online. The list is updated daily.
If you would like to dispose of any unpaid parking tickets, call (806)378-9342, or come to the Municipal Court at 201 S.E. 4th Street. Parking and traffic violations may be paid online.
