Beginning Jan. 30, Seattle courts will resume late fees on infraction tickets that are past their due date, ending the suspension of late fees that began during the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
According to a media release, about 350,000 tickets will be impacted if they remain unpaid.
In March 2020, default penalty fees for past-due tickets and referring tickets to collections were halted due to economic hardships caused by the pandemic.
Late fees are an additional $25 for parking and camera tickets, and an additional $52 for traffic tickets.
If you lost your ticket(s), the city’s online portal can check your license plate, and any issued tickets with that vehicle will be listed.
