What happens if I don’t pay a parking ticket from Wrightsville Beach?

Ken Little

Potentially bad things, according to a question-and-answer section about parking on the town of Wrightsville Beach website, www.townofwrightsvillebeach.com

If an offender fails to pay or appeal a violation within three days, a late fee of $10 will be applied to the violation amount.

Failure to pay or appeal the violation after 10 days will result in an additional late fee of $20 that’s added to the violation amount.

The Q&A section includes this warning:

“If you continue to ignore your obligation to pay, the town may seek alternative forms of collection, including a collection agency, credit bureau action, or small claims court.”

Drivers who accumulate three or more unpaid citations “are subject to have the vehicle immobilized (booted) or towed until full payment is made,” the town cautions.

    Yes…I believe if you are a resident of Wrightsville Beach, all those things can happen to you. But, if you are merely a visitor and don’t plan on going back because of the high price of parking and lack thereof, I don’t really think the guys driving the cushmans can do much to you.

    i think it is ridiculous that Wilmington residents have to pay to park on WB.the beach is not private property,but WB residents act like they own it and can control it. the parking fees have gotten out of hand.
