How to Appeal a Ticket
Appealing a ticket is a written process. Appeal forms are available at the Office of Parking Services or can be printed online. Turn in your completed appeal form at the Office of Parking Services. You must file your appeal within ten business days after the ticket is issued.
Appealing a ticket does not hold the late fee. To avoid a late fee, the ticket that is being appealed should be paid within ten business days of issuance. If an appeal is granted for a ticket that has already been paid, a refund will be issued.
Please write legibly and be specific. The committee’s decision is based on your written explanation. Diagrams and repair receipts are helpful when applicable. There must be “substantial and valid evidence” that the parking violation was not committed, or it occurred due to circumstances beyond your control.
The following are reasons that are NOT grounds for appeal:
- Failure to enter the correct space number when using the metered parking in the garages
- Parking only for a short period
- Failure to display parking permit
- Not seeing the signs
- Absence of a parking space
- Forgetfulness or a lost parking ticket
The appeal committee’s decision is final and binding. You will be notified of their decision by mail.
