Sheet1 Page 1 PARKING FINES BACKGROUND: The Parking Department issues citations to motorists for overdue parking meter violations, blocking alleyways, parking in unauthorized zones, and etc. Most fines are generally paid to the Parking Department in the normal manner. 84% are paid on time. However, as fines are increased by the city in order to regulate parking in the downtown area and to raise funds for capital projects, these percentages are falling. An increasing number of violators are going to court in an effort to have their fines reduced or dismissed. Most of the parking tickets are issued in the downtown area and the Parking Department records indicate that the worst offenders (individuals receiving the most citations) are attorneys, if considered as a group. This audit was requested by the Parking Director as a result of citizen complaints over the favoritism shown attorneys in court which resulted in substantial reductions of fines paid by them. SCOPE: The audit period is for citations settled in court during the last 12 months. The audit will focus on the settlement of fines for two groups: attorneys and everyone else (the ladder known as the general public). PLANNING: 1. Prepare and send an entrance letter to the Parking Director and the Clerk of the Court. 2. Prepare a planning program and budget for the preliminary survey work. 3. Discuss the scope and direction of the audit with the Audit Manager. 4. Hold an entrance conference with the Parking Director in order
