Fines for parking violations set to increase

The Multnomah Circuit Court announced it will boost rates for seven types of parking violations.

Specifically, the changes will boost the fines for:

  • Not having a meter receipt from $45 to $60.
  • Improper display of a meter receipt from $34 to $39.
  • No front or rear plate from $55 to $80.
  • Improperly parking in a permitted zone from $60 to $80.
  • Parking in a carpool zone from $70 to $90.
  • Parking in a truck loading zone from $65 to $90.
  • Logging overtime in a truck loading zone from $65 to $90.

Circuit Court Administrator Doug Bray said the changes aim to put Portland’s fines in line with those levied in other cities.

Each new penalty amount is effective on Feb. 7 except for one. The truck loading-zone overtime fine increases take place July 1.
