Report an Illegally Parked Vehicle by Telephone

To report a potential parking violation, call the Parking Enforcement Hotline at 503-823-5195.

You have three options to choose from:

1. Report an abandoned auto to voicemail.

2. Report a parking violation to voicemail.

3. Speak to a parking enforcement representative.

Voicemails are checked and representatives are available during the following times:

- Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

- Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

- Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To report a potential parking violation at other times, call the Portland Police Bureau's non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

The safety and livability of neighborhoods go hand in hand. Transportation efforts to improve and maintain neighborhood livability include on-street parking operations and enforcement with a priority placed on safety, access for fire and emergency vehicles, and the removal of abandoned autos on public streets.

The Parking Enforcement Program enforces parking meter districts, time zones, loading zones, and restricted zones in an effort to help turn parking spaces over for access to businesses. The Portland Bureau of Transportation enforces parking within Portland city limits and in the public right of way only. PBOT does not enforce parking in off-street parking garages or on private property.

To report a potential parking violation, call the Parking Enforcement Hotline at 503-823-5195. Thank you.
