Tickets & Payments

The Seattle Police Department issues tickets for violations of local Seattle ordinance or Washington State law that are not legally defined as a crime. These civil violations include traffic tickets, red light and school zone camera tickets, and non-traffic related tickets. Parking tickets are issued by the Seattle Department of Transportation. Once issued, these tickets are filed with Seattle Municipal Court.

If you receive a ticket, you have several options for responding to the ticket. You must respond on or before the date shown on the ticket.
