PARC to resume booting vehicles with three or more citations on July 1
The Parking Authority of the River City (PARC) announced today that, in accordance with Louisville Metro Code Ordinances 72.128, the booting of vehicles with three or more outstanding citations will once again be enforced starting July 1. Due to many hardships that came from the COVID-19 pandemic, booting was paused in March 2020.
“PARC was very intentional last year in pausing normal operations due to the unique challenges brought by the pandemic, and we knew that booting a vehicle could exacerbate those challenges,” said PARC Director Tiffany Peebles. “With vaccine numbers increasing and more activity taking place in the central business district, we will be returning to our regular procedure of booting vehicles that have three or more outstanding citations. Appeal opportunities remain available.”
If after July 1, a vehicle is issued its third or more citation, the vehicle will be booted. In addition, if a vehicle was issued three citations prior to the pandemic but was not booted due to the pause in booting, that vehicle remains qualified to be booted after July 1.
Citations are issued to encourage drivers to pay parking meters and adhere to parking guidelines, which leads to an increase in safety and economic development. If citation fines are not paid, booting is the next step.
To pay a parking citation, PARC offers several options, including using the Go502 app, paying online at louisvilleky.gov/PARC, calling (888) 757-2616, mailing the payment to PARC’s office or paying in person. A $3.50 convenience fee will be added to the payment if done online or by phone, and a $1.50 fee will be added if paid through the Go502 app.
To appeal a citation, drivers can file an appeal at louisvilleky.gov/PARC, or download the appeal form from louisvilleky.gov/PARC and submit that form via fax at 569-6611 or mail/bring it to PARC’s office.
PARC’s office is located at 222 S. 1st Street, Suite 106, and is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. To reach PARC by phone, call (502) 587-7275.
