It can be a tiring and costly dent in your wallet; but there’s always a small chance of getting out of parking tickets – be it through contesting the ticket, making a company fight for your parking ticket or through an app. We break down some of the best ways to get out of a parking ticket, so that you are always prepared to deal with unfair parking tickets.
1. Contesting your ticket via the legal system
If you really think you didn’t deserve that dreaded parking ticket, you can contest your ticket through mail, in person, or online (if your city provides that service). General guidelines tell us that the first thing you should do is read your parking ticket for mistakes or written typos – all of this is vital for a dismissal. Evidence, as you may have guessed, is an essential part in explaining your case; remember every detail before and after you got ticket to find any evidence you feel might is important in getting you out of it. Try to schedule a hearing within 30 days of the issue of ticket; if that doesn’t work out, head to court and plead your case, but beware if your ticket is not overturned there’s a filing fee.
