Correctable Violations (“Fix-It Tickets”) – Proof of Correction Procedures
If you were issued a citation for violation of missing or improperly displayed license plates, or missing, expired or improperly displayed registration tabs, you must provide valid proof of correction with your citation or notice. Vehicle inspection and sign off of the “Certificate of Correction” for valid proof of correction may be obtained at Lomita Sheriff Station or any police department.. A copy of your registration will not be recognized as proof of correction.
Upon obtaining the proof of correction, mail it along with the $10 reduced violation fee to the City’s Parking Enforcement Center as stated above. This must be done within 21 calendar days from the citation issuance date or by the courtesy notice due date.
Request for Administrative Appeal
