Parking Citation Appeal

The operator of a vehicle may file an appeal if they believe the citation has been issued unjustly. The appeal must be filed, in writing, with Parking Services within five weekdays of the date the citation was issued.  The following circumstances ARE NOT considered to be a valid basis for appeal:

  • Lack of legal parking space
  • Lack of convenient parking space
  • Time constraints; you were late
  • Time constraints; it took longer than you anticipated
  • Lack of funds to pay the fine
  • Failure to observe clearly posted restrictions or regulations
    Note: If your vehicle is unattended, it is parked.

A parking citation appeal should address only the issues related to the citation. The appeal process is not a forum for complaints.

Four-way flashers are for warning other motorists that your vehicle may be a hazard. Having your flashers on does not allow you to park illegally, for any time period.

Many yellow curb areas are for emergency vehicle access. Unattended vehicles left in these areas constitute significant risk for others, and will not be allowed.
