An MVA “flag” on your vehicle record indicates either an unpaid parking ticket, a red-light camera ticket or some other problem which prohibits you from renewing your registration. You first must clear up the problem through the agency (e.g., local police department) that requested the flag placement. A list of the parking, red-light, and toll facility flagging program jurisdictions, which includes contact information, is available from the MVA. Once the problem has been resolved, that agency will give you a flag release statement that you can submit to the MVA as proof of its resolution.
Currently, the Cottage City Police Department charges a $35 administrative flag release fee for red light camera tickets and parking tickets.
