Parking citations must be contested or paid within 21 calendar days of issuance. Failure to pay the fine within the allotted 21 days will result in additional penalties and/or DMV delay of your vehicle registration until penalties are paid. Unregistered vehicles or vehicles with over five outstanding parking citations may be impounded, per 22651(i)(1) CVC. All fines are the responsibility of the registered vehicle owner.

The City of National City contracts Data Ticket, Inc. for parking enforcement administration within the City.
