Parking Tickets and Traffic Citations

I received a parking ticket. How do I pay it, or how do I appeal it?


Parking tickets are handled through the Town Hall, Office of the Parking Clerk at 781-431-1019 ext. 2296. Payments must be made within 21 days to the parking clerk, or additional fines will be posted. You cannot pay a ticket at the police station. Appeals can also be made through the parking clerk.


I received a traffic (motor vehicle) citation. How do I pay it, or how do I appeal it?


The back of the citation contains all the information regarding payment and appeal information. You have the right to request a hearing, but you must do so within 20 days of the offense. After that time, you will be responsible for paying the full amount. All appeals for motor vehicle citations are conducted at the Dedham District Court House, 631 High Street, Dedham. Notification of the hearing date will be via mail and handled through the Dedham District Court.


 Non-payment of traffic citations will result in your license or right to operate a motor vehicle in Massachusetts being suspended or revoked.  These are arrestable offenses!
