Appeals of parking tickets are intended to address errors in law or procedure only—you may not appeal a ticket for any other reason.
If you've received a ticket which you wish to dispute, you can contest it in court.
- 10 days after a ticket has been issued, if it is unpaid, a ticket payment reminder letter notice will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle.
- 20 days after a ticket has been issued, if it remains unpaid, a summons will be laid in court and a copy mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle.
- The summons will have information on the court date, time, and location to contest the ticket.
- If contested, a judge will set a trial date for the ticket, at which time a registered owner will have the opportunity to provide details they feel are relevant to their case.
To make a "malfunctioning meter" appeal, contact the city within 24 hours.
All other appeals must be made within 72 hours to the issuing agency noted at the bottom of the ticket. The right to appeal a ticket will be forfeited if not requested within the appropriate timeframe.
