The Las Vegas City Council unanimously voted in favor of allowing parking tickets issued between Oct. 16 and Nov. 16, 2019 to be paid with donations of food for those in need during the holiday season. Any supplies taken in by the city through the program will be donated to the Helping Hands of Vegas Valley, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides assistance to low income and disabled senior citizens.

Those who have a non-public safety parking infraction in the city of Las Vegas between now and Nov. 16 may resolve their tickets by bringing in non-perishable food items of equal or greater value to their fine to the Parking Services Offices at 500 S. Main St. This must be done within 30 days of the citation date and a purchase receipt for the donation is required. Food items for tickets will be collected until Dec. 16, 2019.

In July of 2016, the City Council adopted an ordinance authorizing the establishment of this occasional program allowing for charitable donations in lieu of payment for parking fines.

The following public safety-related parking tickets are excluded from the program:

  • Any handicap violation
  • Red curb
  • 18 inches from curb
  • Blocking an alley
  • No parking areas
  • Fire lane
  • Traffic hazard
  • No stopping
  • Sidewalk
  • Double parking
  • Bike lane
  • Blocking or facing traffic
  • Too close to intersection, crosswalk or stop/yield sign
