The City of Bangor will start stepping up their enforcement of non-paid parking tickets next month, including towing the vehicles of people who have three or more outstanding fines.

Anyone with three or more parking tickets in the city of Bangor is encouraged to pay their fines during the month of March, or face the consequences of non-payment. Starting in April, the City intends to increase its efforts to enforce existing parking ordinances, which could include towing vehicles with three or more outstanding parking tickets.Parking enforcement in Bangor became much more efficient in 2018, when the city adopted license plate reader technology.

Fines can be paid in person at the Pickering Square Garage ticket office, 100 Broad Street, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or they can be paid online. Under the city's parking ordinances, if an individual receives a parking ticket and doesn't pay or contest the ticket within 30 days, the fine doubles. Anyone with three or more outstanding parking tickets is encouraged to visit the Pickering Square Garage ticket office for assistance in order to get them paid off.

Notifications are being sent in the mail to everyone who has three or more tickets over 30 days old. In addition, notices will be placed on the windshields of cars identified as such.

For more information about existing parking tickets, call (207) 941-1654 or enter your plate number online.
