If you have been charged with a parking violation(s) and you did not own the vehicle on the date indicated on the citation, please follow the instructions below.
If all of the information in the Release of Liability is completed and returned, verification will be obtained from the DMV, for California vehicles, to ensure that the registered owner has complied with CVC Section 5602 (i.e. submitted a valid Release of Liability to the DMV). If subsequent verification is received from the DMV, the registered owner listed on the notice will be relieved of liability.
