ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – Last year, the City of Roanoke Auditing Report concerning on-street parking found a potential issue where parking citations were issued in place of a warning in certain situations.
To address this situation, city officials along with the operators of Lancor Parking, the city’s PARK Roanoke Progam, have established a program to refund those who received a ticket in place of a warning.
If you believe you may have received a ticket in place of a warning between Jan. 1, 2017, through March 25, 2020, you can submit a claim to PARK Roanoke through Sept. 1, 2021.
If your claim is found to be eligible for a refund, you will be offered one along with any fees associated with the citation and compounded interest.

The city asks you to allow up to 10 business days for a reply regarding eligibility.
If you qualify, allow three-to-six weeks for the refund to be processed.
Refunds will only be eligible for specific first-time violations including:
- Parking within a designated loading zone
- Parking or stopping in a no-parking zone
- Exceeding timed parking
A full list of eligible violations can be found by clicking here.
To ensure the issue is resolved in the future, PARK Roanoke has implemented the following:
- Completed full software upgrade to the TickeTrack System
- Created new SCOFFS that accurately identifies warning tickets versus citations
- Periodic spot audits conducted by management
- Reviewing current City Code.
