Parking tickets cannot be discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. They can, however, be discharged under Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is known as "liquidation" bankruptcy. This generally means that all of a debtor's non-exempt property may be sold by a bankruptcy trustee, though the laws for property exemption are different in each state. For example, in New York, most debtors are able to keep all of their property. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a 'reorganization of debts', and allows the individual to keep their property and income while paying off all or part of their debt over a three to five year period. In the case of a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing, the parking tickets can be considered "unsecured" debts (similar to credit cards and medical bills), and can thus be treated as such for repayment.

Bankruptcy is meant to give an honest debtor a fresh start in life. Just because your chapter 7 petition has been dismissed it does not mean that you can never file for bankruptcy protection. If your chapter 7 petition was dismissed less than a year ago, then the automatic stay that comes into operation on the filing of a bankruptcy petition will be operational only for 30 days after which it will be terminated unless you can show that your prior filing which was dismissed was filed in good faith. For an official opinion, it is advised you seek legal counsel.
