Request a Citation Appeal
Consider the following questions before determining to contest a parking ticket:
Was I unsure of the law before choosing to park in the spot?
Am I unaware of the laws pertaining to the citation?
Did I not see the signs in the area?
Were you in a hurry? I was held over in a meeting?
Am I the only person that received a ticket?
Is the vehicle owned by someone else?
Answering yes to any of these questions, should indicate an appeal may not be provided. Violations are photographed at the time the ticket is written. There is a $7.50 fee to process an appeal if the citation is upheld.
