PARKING ENFORCEMENT
An important role

Parking regulations are meant to keep vehicles off the street so that street sweeping services can be more effective. Other parking regulations include red curb violations, parking too close to a fire hydrant or a handicap-access curb, and unauthorized handicap zone parking. The Parking Enforcement staff enforces these regulations and also assists in towing vehicles that are inoperable, have expired registration tags, or five or more unpaid citations.

Vehicles parked on the street on a regularly scheduled street sweeping day will be cited. The current fine is $50.00 (Long Beach Municipal Code M10.22.140).

Payment

Payment of a street sweeping parking citation is required within 21 days of the issuance date. Failure to pay a Notice of Violation will result in an increase in the amount due, and may result in a hold placed against the vehicle registration or further legal action.

The postmark date will not be considered as the date of payment.

If you wish to pay the fine in person, you may do so at Long Beach City Hall :

333 West Ocean Blvd.
Long Beach , CA 90802
Monday through Friday
between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m
.

If you wish to pay the fine by mail, send a check or money order in the envelope attached to your citation form. Please write the number of the citation notice on your check or money order, made payable to the City of Long Beach, and send it to:

City of Long Beach
P .O. Box 22766
Long Beach, CA 90801-5766
