I received a $100 parking ticket for a fire lane violation. There is a fire lane sign showing where the fire lane starts, however I made sure to park on the opposite side of the driveway of the sign, and in the area before the sign. Essentially, my car was diagonal to the sign. There was so way of knowing where the fire lane began and ended, so I am wondering if I can sue my University for giving me a ticket when the signing for the fire lane is not clear?
You cannot sue with your university for giving you a ticket. The way you win is by winning the case on the ticket you either with that or you lose that
I agree with Attorney Isquith. You cannot sue, but you can defend the case using that information.
You received two good answers. You cannot sue because they gave you a ticket, at least not on the facts you provided. You can argue in court that the ticket should not have been issued. If the judge agrees you do not have to pay the fine.
