Parking Tickets

Where can I pay my Parking Ticket?

Parking tickets can be paid at the Collectors Office by cash, check or money order.  If a parking ticket is marked and preventing you from renewing your license/registration, these tickets can be paid by cash or money order at the Collectors Office or online here (link to: https://www.salem.com/paybills) with a credit or debit card.  You will need the ticket number and plate number.  Checks/money orders should be made payable to City of Salem.

  • In person: City Hall, Collectors Office, 93 Washington Street Room 4, Salem, MA 01970
  • Online: https://www.salem.com/paybills
  • By mail: City of Salem Collectors Office, 93 Washington Street Room 4, Salem, MA 01970

What happens if I do not pay a parking ticket?

If a parking ticket remains unpaid for 21 days, a $10 late fee is added to the original amount of the ticket and a notice is mailed to the registered owner.  If any part of the original fine remains unpaid after 21 additional days, an additional $40 in fees are added. The Registry of Motor Vehicles is notified, and a Mark is placed preventing you from renewing your license/registration.
