Report an Illegally Parked Vehicle by Telephone

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

You have two options to choose from:

  1. Report an illegally parked vehicle on the enforcement request line.

  2. 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 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.
