Received a parking ticket for parking near a fire hydrant which was located by a big tree and I did not see it. Parked there for less than 10 minutes and got a ticket. What are the chances of appealing this ticket?
You said it yourself in your question, you actually did the thing. Sometimes you can try to appeal and they will give you a one time free pass, but there's no basis to appeal beyond simply a written letter if you actually did it and admit to doing it.
I am a Massachusetts attorney and answer questions based on Massachusetts law. The above answer is for educational purposes only and does not create an attorney client relationship or constitute legal advice.
Instructions on how to appeal should be on the ticket. Usually there's no fee to appeal and you just fill out some online form, You might win. If not, you're in no worse position than you're in now.
