If you do not pay the full amount of the ticket after you receive a notice of pending summons, the City will mail a parking summons that:
- describes the offence
- explains what you must do in order to respond to the summons
- requires you to appear in municipal court on a specified court date
- states if you fail to appear on your specified court date that you may receive a default conviction in your absence
The Summary Offences Procedure Act, 1990 allows the City of Regina to serve the summons by mail to the address you provided to Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) for your vehicle registration.
Once you receive a summons
After receiving a summons, you can either:
- pay the fine listed on the summons before the specified court date so you don’t have to go to court
- appear for your first court date (listed in your summons) and either:
- plead guilty
- plead not guilty and request a trial to dispute your ticket
If you fail to appear in court on the date listed in your summons, the court may enter a default conviction against you with respect to the parking violation.
If you have been mailed multiple parking summonses by the City, you can contact the City Prosecutor (see below) to have all matters addressed during your first court date instead of appearing at court several times.
Note: You can only appear on summonses that have future court dates.
