PEOPLE OF DOVER ARE ON THE MOVE AND OUR CITY IS GROWING!
Pay Parking Violations Online
Motorists who want the convenience of using an online-payment option now have one. Through the city’s parking management provider, Cardinal Tracking, instead of a trip to the Parking Bureau or mailing a check, people can pay any outstanding parking violations by visiting citations.dover.nh.gov.
“For years, people have been asking for an online payment option, now we have the program to provide it,” Parking Manager Bill Simons said.
A vehicle license plate number and violation number are required to access the system. A $1.25 administrative fee per ticket is added to the process. Printed receipts are provided and the city parking program is immediately updated that the account has been paid.
“I can see a lot of people avoiding late fees since they can now pay the ticket once it is uploaded from the parking officer’s handheld computer,” Simons added.
People receiving a parking citation either on a Friday evening, or over the weekend will need to wait until the next business day for that citation to be available in the online payment system.

Second Half Underway On Central Av. Bridge Work
Progress on the Central Avenue Bridge repair project continues, as crews have completed repairs on the east side of the bridge. That side of the bridge has reopened, and not crews are focused on the west side. At this time the target completion date for the project is Aug. 22.
Parking is still prohibited on the bridge, however, 40 parking spaces have been added to the downtown area to make up for the 30 spaces lost. These spaces can be found in the parking lot behind Oriental Delight (access from First Street), and in the Orchard Street parking lot near the parking garage.
The bridge sidewalks will remain open and accessible, with the exception of brief closures necessary to complete the work. Since the project started in April traffic has continued to flow along Central Avenue, with only minimal delays during peak travel times.
While the work continues, business owners are asked to direct employees to seek parking that does not diminish available parking for their customers. The City of Dover’s parking garage is an easily accessible option for downtown customers and employees.

Motorcycle Parking Rules
Motorcycles may share a parking stall, but each motorcycle must have its own meter receipt. Meter receipts should be left on the motorcycle using the area where the seat and gas tank meet or any place a cable may hold it in place. There is a tear-off portion with each receipt that the driver should keep with them in the event the other half is dislodged.
Disability Parking Rules
Vehicles displaying an accessible parking placard or plate, and if the person to whom the placard or plate is issued is going to or from the vehicle, does not need to display a meter receipt. However, time limits (three hours in the downtown) remain in effect. Downtown employees with accessible parking needs may park all day without charge in all city parking lots.
Parking Bureau Available To Help With Disability Parking Questions For Private Lots
The rules for disabled parking requirements for private parking lots can be complicated. The Dover Parking Bureau can help you find answers to most questions.
