What is the FPS (Penalty Charge Notice) ?
The reform of paid parking on roadways is characterised by the passage from a criminal organization, identical at the national level (with a fixed fine of €17) to a local organization with the creation of an occupancy fee for the public domain.
can pay his right to park on-street . The driver can do this, either at the start of the parking session (immediate payment) or later, with an FPS (Penalty Charge Notice).
Each community determines its post-parking package. Unlike immediate payment receipts, allocated to the general budget, the law stipulates that FPS proceeds are used to finance projects to improve urban travel.
I no longer have a ticket to affix on the inside of windshield, how can the agent verify that I'm in good standing?
You will need to enter your license plate number when paying by parking meter or via the mobile application. The control agents can thus via a portable terminal, scan the license plates and check if the vehicle is in good standing.
The ticket issued by the parking meter is a proof of payment
Can I receive multiple FPS during the same day?
Yes, a new FPS can be established at the end of the maximum authorised parking time: check the zone-specific parking conditions in the cities where you park.
Example: 2H max in orange zone and 10H max in green zone - so it is possible to receive up to 5 FPS per day.
How can I pay for an FPS?
If you settle your FPS within 72 hours, you will receive a reduced FPS (Penalty Charge Notice). This amount is defined by each community. This amount is payable via:
- the jemegare.fr website
- the mobile application offered in the city
- the parking meter
- at the parking welcome office
Otherwise, you will receive a payment notice by mail sent by the ANTAI (National Agency for the Automated Treatment of Offences). The amount already paid on the parking meter or on mobile is deducted from the amount of the FPS (Penalty Charge Notice), if it has been paid during the same time period as the established FPS. You have three months from the ANTAI notification to settle your FPS.
What happens if I do not pay my FPS in three months?
After three months, you will receive an enforceable title with a mark-up on the basic FPS. The FPS becomes "forced recovery" and a 20% increase of the FPS amount is added to the FPS amount (with a minimum amount of €50).
If you pay in the month following the date of the enforcement order, you will receive a 20% discount on the increase amount accruing to the State.
How can I challenge an FPS ?
You file a RAPO either by mail or on the website jemegare.fr and you must attach a copy:
- the FPS payment notice
- the vehicle registration certificate
- as well as any other document of proof (copy of a digital ticket, photo ...)
