HOW do I Contest a SDCCD Parking Citation?
Effective July 1, 1993, the California Vehicle Code was amended. Parking
violations are no longer considered a criminal offense and may not be
contested through the Municipal Court. (Per California Vehicle code sections
40200 and 40215).
Parking citations issued at SDCCD campuses may be contested by
requesting an Administrative Review within 21 days of the issue date. To
make this request, complete a SDCCD Request to Waive Parking Citation
form. Forms are available at College Police offices on campus, or
downloaded from http://police.sdccd.edu/parking.htm

WHAT happens if I don’t request an Administrative Review within 21 days?
If you do not request an administrative review within the time frame stated above, you lose the
opportunity to contest the citation(s), and all fines must be paid.
WHAT if I don’t agree with the results of the Review?
You may choose to have your case heard by an independent hearing examiner by requesting an
administrative hearing within 21 calendar days of the decision date on waiver. See number II,
Hearing Examiner Appointment on your waiver form for instructions. All fines must be paid
before the hearing is scheduled. If you have any question please call (619) 388-6416.
Note: All contested parking violations must go through Administrative Review process before
an Administrative Hearing will be scheduled.
WHAT happens if I don’t pay Parking Violations?
Failure to pay outstanding parking fines and penalties will result in withholding of vehicle
registration by the Department of Motor Vehicles, and may subject the vehicle to
immobilization (booting) or impoundment. In addition, you may be subject to a civil judgment
that could lead to garnishment of wages and seizure of property.
