The City of Las Vegas is partnering with HELP of Southern Nevada to offer a program allowing the payment of parking fines with toys in anticipation of the coming holiday season.

Any driver issued a non-public safety parking ticket in the city of Las Vegas from Oct. 15 through Nov. 15 may choose to resolve the ticket by providing a child-appropriate, unwrapped new toy of equal or greater value than the ticket fine.

To participate, drivers must bring the parking ticket, as well as a receipt for the toy within 30 days of the ticket date.

The following public safety and handicap-related parking tickets are EXCLUDED from this program:

- Any handicap related violation

- No Stopping/No Standing

- Red curb

- Sidewalk

- 18” from curb

- Double parking

- Blocking alley

- Too close to intersection, crosswalk, stop/yield sign

- No parking areas

- Bike lane

- Fire Lane/hydrant

- Blocking or facing traffic

Toys and tickets will be collected until Dec. 15 at the Parking Services Office, located at 350 S. City Parkway.

Office hours are Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., closed on weekends and holidays.
