Report Parking Problem


​​Let us know if you see a parking problem. Common parking problems may include: a broken meter, a malfunctioning pay station, a vehicle blocking a driveway, or an improperly parked car. You can report parking problems by phone, email, or online.

​Reporting key information

The following information is helpful for our staff to respond and resolve parking problems quickly.

  • Vehicle license plate number
  • Vehicle description
  • Location of parking concern
  • Description of problem

Once a meter becomes broken, jammed, or unable to accept payment, the parking space becomes a “no parking zone” and must remain open for staff to repair. If a pay station becomes inoperable, please use the nearest working pay station.​

Online Parking Report Form

Once your online report is submitted, you will receive a case number. Keep this case number for future reference.

After hours/weekend reporting

Any after hours or weekend parking problems should be reported to Salem Police Non-Emergency at 503-588-6123.
