I parked my car beside a postal office in Detroit MI to bring my mail for less than 5 minutes in a official parking place but in an opposite side of the other cars at 8:55 pm and when I went out the officer started making the ticket and I asked her to stop and I’ll move it right away after along day in university but she refused and continued issuing the ticket.
Anyway to cancel the ticket ?
Since Bankruptcy is the listed practice area, I can tell you about that option. Parking ticket fines are considered civil fines in most states. If you choose to file for relief under chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code, the parking fine will not be discharged, but the debt can be discharged in a chapter 13 filing. However, filing for relief under chapter 13 would not make any sense unless you have a lot of other debt, after a thorough review of your financial situation with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.

There are few grounds to have the ticket rescinded. A civil violation such as a traffic ticket is brought up on a special docket. Before taking any action and tying up the court and your time you might want to just pay the ticket. If the sign clearly states that parking held for postal employees it will probably stick. However, if the area was not clearly marked the City of Detroit has electronic parking and if you paid you can show the bank statement showing the parking fee was paid and hope they take this in satisfaction.
