What to do if you sell your car


To ensure you do not receive a citation or collection notice for a vehicle you no longer own it is important to notify the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) so they can update their records. For more information, see the DMV’s Selling, Donating or Gifting a Vehicle webpage.

If you received a letter or a citation regarding a vehicle you no longer own, you can provide a copy of the bill of sale, the DMV records of transfer of ownership and/or insurance records showing the date the vehicle was dropped from your insurance.
 
General Parking Ticket Information
These tickets illustrate the two types of parking citations which may be issued by City of Eugene Parking Services Officers or City of Eugene Police Officers.

You may access the parking computer database to obtain information about your outstanding and paid parking citations. The on-line parking ticket information is accessed by entering your vehicle license plate number or your parking ticket number.

The data in the computer system is reflective of information in the database at that moment. Parking tickets issued by enforcement agencies are not immediately received by the court and may not be loaded into the database. There is no guarantee that the computer database includes all outstanding citations from enforcement agencies. It is your responsibility to follow up with the court to verify all outstanding parking tickets are paid in full.

How to Resolve a Ticket


The following options are available to resolve a parking ticket:

  • Pay the bail due within 30 calendar days from the date of issue. The bail will double if the original bail is not paid in full within 30 calendar days of the date of issue. A vehicle may be booted when $40.00 or more in outstanding fines is 30 days or more past due. If you fail to meet your financial obligation your account may be referred to an external collection agency.

  • Pay the bail and submit a written explanation. The amount of bail must be paid in full for the explanation to be considered. If a written explanation is submitted, the right to a court hearing or appeal is waived, and the court's decision is final. You may send your written explanation by letter or complete the Parking Ticket Review form. This form is available at the Eugene Municipal Court. If you wish to be notified of the court's ruling, a self-addressed, stamped envelope must be attached to your written explanation.
