Neighborhood Parking Enforcement

Examples of parking violations

The Garland City Marshal’s Office issues tickets for parking violations. You can pay your tickets online.

Neighborhood parking problems are the most frequent source of resident complaints to the City. In the past, parking tickets were treated like traffic tickets – Class C misdemeanors with high fines and difficult enforcement procedures.

In 2019, the Garland City Council approved a program for administrative enforcement of parking ordinances throughout the city. A first offense carries a $25 fine, a second offense will be $50 and all subsequent offenses will be $75.

These are some of the most common violations:

  • Parking on an unimproved surface
  • Parking on a sidewalk
  • Parking within 20 feet of a crosswalk or intersection
  • Parking within 15 feet of a fire hydrant
  • Parking within 30 feet of an intersection control device
  • Blocking a driveway or traffic in an alley

The neighborhood parking enforcement process will also address illegally parked commercial and oversized vehicles.

Marshals enforce proactively and respond to parking complaints. To report a parking violation, use Garland eAssist, which is available at GarlandTX.gov or as an app through Google Play and Apple.

IMPORTANT - You will NOT receive an email notification to pay your parking ticket. All violation notices will be sent by regular mail and posted on the vehicle.
