About Us

A Parking Violations Bureau is an Administrative Tribunal which can accept pleas and hear and determine charges regarding parking and red light camera violations. The Parking Violation or Ticket is prima facie evidence, meaning that it stands as written – the issuing officer is not required to appear for hearings. If there is a mandatory element missing or misdescribed, the ticket may be dismissed on request of the respondent. Hearings are held before Administrative Law Judges who hear evidence and make final determinations on the charges. All hearings are recorded.

Payment Methods 

The PVB accepts cash, personal checks (except for suspensions and boot and tows), Visa, Master Card, and Discover Card. Payments may also be made online using credit cards or by electronic check and by phone by calling 1-866-377-9665  (unless your registration is suspended or you are boot and tow eligible). There is an additional convenience fee based on the dollar amount of the transaction charged by the payment service company, except for electronic checks for which there is no additional charge. (Please go to To Pay a Ticket for more information and a link to the payment screen). If you use a credit card to pay at the PVB, the cardholder must be present and must present a picture ID. Please remember payment is an admission of guilt.

If you bounce a check or a request a Charge Back on a credit card payment, your paid tickets will be reinstated, all penalties will be added, and an additional $35 fee will be added for each bounced check or credit card Charge Back.  

Hearing Schedule

  • TUESDAY At 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. and at 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. or

  • MOTIONS WILL BE HEARD ON FRIDAYS IN 2019

The above schedule applies to business days. No hearings are conducted on Saturdays, Sundays or Holidays. The PVB closes at 4:00 pm the Wednesday before any legal holidays which fall on a Thursday. The PVB has no scheduled  in person hearings the last 2 weeks of December and closes at 4 pm every day during those 2 weeks. However, ALJs will be available for motions and walk-ins for suspended registrations or booted and towed respondents.

The PVB also holds Ex-Parte hearings or “hearings by mail”. Respondents do not appear in person, but rather enter a plea on the ticket and submit a written statement of the facts and any documentary evidence or pictures which may assist their case.

All hearing decisions are final, whether Ex-Parte or in person. An appeal may be filed within 30 (thirty) days of the decision date. There is a $10.00 nonrefundable filing fee for all appeals. Filing an appeal does not stay the execution of the judgment rendered unless payment or the posting of a bond is made in the amount of the decision. Appeals are held before an Appeals Board consisting of three Administrative Law Judges other than the one whose decision is being appealed. The decision of the Appeals Board is the final decision of the Bureau.

Motion Hearing Schedule

In order to prevent overcrowding and backups during scheduled hearings, the PVB now has a Motion Calendar. In 2019 all Motions will be heard on Fridays. Administrative Law Judges will hear all Motions to Vacate Judgment. If you are Boot and Tow Eligible or Booted or Towed you may still be added to the scheduled Hearing Calendar on the day you come in. All other Motions to Vacate Judgment will be heard only on the Motion Calendar day. For an updated Motion Calendar list please click on Judgment Information listed to the left.

Failure to Respond

Failure to respond to a ticket and subsequent notices, appear at a hearing, or pay the decision after a hearing, will result in a default judgment entered in the City Court of Yonkers. A default judgment allows the PVB to SUSPEND THE REGISTRATION of your vehicle at the NYS DMV for one unpaid parking ticket with four late notices. A suspended registration may result in your ARREST, your vehicle may be impounded and you may be charged with a misdemeanor. At this time the PVB will not suspend your registration for failure to pay a Red Light Camera ticket, however, a judgment will be entered against you which allows the PVB to impound your vehicle(s) and send your judgment to a City Marshal or a Collection Agency.

Impounding a Vehicle 

A vehicle may be impounded for improper registration or license plates and for outstanding parking and/or red light camera violations. Boot releases are $75.00. Towing fees and storage fees are set by law. The current fee for storage is $35.00 a day, including the day the vehicle was towed. Please check with the Tow Company for the total amount due. Towing and storage are paid directly to the Tow company which towed the vehicle.

PAYMENTS MUST BE MADE IN CASH, CERTIFIED BANK CHECK OR CREDIT CARDS (MASTER CARD, VISA AND DISCOVER) FOR ALL SUSPENDED REGISTRATIONS AND FOR ALL TOWED OR BOOTED VEHICLES. WHEN USING A CREDIT CARD THE PERSON WHOSE NAME IS ON THE CARD MUST BE PRESENT. THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL $20.00 REGISTRATION CLEARANCE FEE FOR EACH SUSPENSION ON A VEHICLE.

THERE IS A $35.00 RETURNED CHECK FEE FOR ALL RETURNED CHECKS AND CREDIT CARD CHARGE BACKS.
