Time Limit to Collect on a Parking Ticket
by: Debtcollectionanswers.com

There is no time limit on when an unpaid parking ticket can be collected. In fact, there have been recent instances of consumers being contacted about unpaid parking (and traffic) tickets that are decades old. Given their increasingly tight budgets, many municipalities are going after very old debts in an effort to raise much needed funds and many of them are turning the debts over to debt collectors. So, I would advise you to pay your parking ticket, especially because, depending on the terms of the ticket you received, interest and other fees may be accruing, which would dramatically increase the total amount that you owe.
