The Winston-Salem Department of Transportation is responsible for the enforcement of parking regulations in the downtown area. Parking fines vary, depending on the type of violation:
- Time violations: $15 Effective July 1, 2013
- Illegal violations (e.g. parking in a fire lane, double parking): range from $15 to $250.
- Wheel-Lock Procedures: If a vehicle owner has three unpaid parking tickets each over 90 days old, and is found to be parked illegally, the vehicle will be wheel locked.
- To have a wheel-lock removed, the owner of the vehicle must pay all outstanding fines and wheel-lock fees at the Revenue Office (Bryce A. Stuart Municipal Building at 100 East First Street).
