RICHMOND, Va. – The City of Richmond is offering amnesty on penalties applied to overdue parking citations in light of impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Those who received parking tickets on or after March 16 will have additional fines and penalties waived as long as the original ticketed amount is paid by August 31,” city officials said in a release.

Additionally, officials say those who currently owe money for parking tickets and overdue penalties prior to March 16 will have their amounts due frozen, and will not accrue additional fines and penalties during the amnesty period as long as they satisfy their balances by August 31.

DMV related hold fees are not included in the amnesty program.
