Parking Tips for Your Point Pleasant Beach Court Appearance
For on-street parking, Point Pleasant Beach utilizes the “Pay and Display” and the “Pay by Number” system, in addition to traditional parking meters (quarters only). If using the “Pay and Display” system, please make sure that the machine dispenses both your receipt and the voucher to be placed on your dashboard. It's very important to place the voucher right side up in a clearly visible manner, since the borough will issue summonses for improper display of parking vouchers. The “Pay by Number” system only dispenses a receipt, so there's no need to place anything on the dashboard. You must have the exact dollar amount, since both systems do not dispense change.
Payment Information for Pt. Pleasant Beach Municipal Court
If your summons does not have the “court appearance required” box checked and you wish to plead guilty, you can simply pay the fine directly to the court.

Parking or traffic tickets can be paid through the NJMC Direct website at www.njmcdirect.com. You must pay with a Visa or MasterCard logo card, and you will be assessed a convenience fee for this service.
