Hi,

I just moved in to Alexandria couple of months back.Registered my vehicle to my new address.Just yesterday I got a Parking Ticket Courtesy Notice about a parking ticket issued to me couple of weeks back saying "Failure to Display City/County Vehicle Tag" with violation code "10-4-37'.
The date and time the ticket was issued, I'm pretty sure the car was parked in my resident parking.I also have the resident parking permit sticker on.
I can't figure out why I got this ticket.Also I never found a parking ticket on my windshield nor had I received an earlier notice.Now they are saying deadline to contest the ticket has passed.
When I looked online searching for this violation code, it mentioned something about decal sticker for city of alexandria that needs to be purchased.Weird, never had to use it before.
I have the resident's parking permit sticker on the windshield.Is that not enough.

Any advise would be helpful.Thanks!

No, it's not enough. Your resident parking tag has nothing to do with registering your car with your county/city for personal property taxes. Did you just move to Virginia?

Alexandria has gotten really strict about that. A couple of years ago, my HOA sent out notices that enforcement of city stickers was going to begin in the off-street parking lots. I see police cruisers patrolling my neighborhood at night -- and yup, even the off-street condo parking that they used to ignore. Last week two cars parked on my cul-de-sac got tickets. On the bright side, the City of Alexandria is a pleasant place to live, so I guess the revenue is being put to good use :-).

Residential lot = off-street parking.

How would they know I wasn't a Fairfax County resident? We don't have county stickers on our cars. I didn't realize they hadn't done away with personal property tax stickers in Alexandria.

Personal property stickers have nothing to do with where you park your car. It's an indicator that you have paid your property taxes on the car for the year.

They know because they run your plates and see where you have registered the car.
