James Short Parkade's 4th Avenue SW Entrances Closed 9pm - 4:30am

Effective March 13th, there will be no access to the parkade via any of the 4th Avenue SW entrances between 9pm and 4:30am, seven days a week. During these hours, only the 5th Avenue entrances will be unlocked.

If you don't pay your parking ticket or parking infraction notice, you will be issued a violation ticket with a "first appearance date". Upon receipt of the violation ticket, you have the option to appeal your violation ticket to the Provincial Court of Alberta. Instructions are on the violation ticket.

You have three options:

  1. Pay the voluntary payment
  2. Plead not guilty by completing the appropriate section of the violation ticket and mailing that plea to Provincial Court
  3. Appear before a justice of the court on the "first appearance date" found on the violation ticket

If you select Option 2, complete the section on the violation ticket and mail your plea to Provincial Court. A trial date will be scheduled by the court.

Please note: The onus is on you to ensure that payment or any other action reaches the court office before the "first appearance date" to avoid late payment charges.

If you fail to appear in court on any scheduled dates, you may be convicted in absence and face additional fees. A notice of conviction will be issued by the court.

Unpaid fines will result in denial of Alberta Registries services until all outstanding amounts are paid. An accumulation of unpaid fines may result in the suspension of your operator's licence.
