If your car is parked in violation of motor vehicle or traffic laws of the state, including the Texas Transportation Code, enforcement officers will have the discretion to issue notices, warnings or citations on an escalating scale:
1st Violation: Courtesy Notice
2nd Violation: Formal Warning
3rd Violation: Parking Citation (including a monetary fine)
Please note: Courtesy notices and warning tickets are at the complete discretion of the ticket writer. In the event of an immediate or impending danger to public safety, a ticket may be issued for the violation upon first notice, or the vehicle may be towed.
For reference, please see a sample courtesy notice (PDF).
