Please read carefully before proceeding with your appeal.
The decision of the Appeals Committee is final and fines
are considered due when the decision is rendered.

Unfamiliarity of the University of Western Ontario traffic and
parking regulations does not constitute grounds for appeal.
The following reasons are not considered grounds for granting an appeal:

  • "Everybody parks there / I am the only one who got a ticket."
  • "I was only there for five or ten minutes."
  • "I've parked there for the last five weeks (months, years etc.) and I've never been cited before."
  • "I didn't know."
  • "I thought it was a space."
  • "I didn't see the sign."
  • "I can't afford the fine."
  • "I had to use the washroom facilities (or had a sick friend that had to use the washroom facilities)."
  • "My permit/pass/parking receipt was not properly displayed because..."

How to Write an Effective Appeal
All parking infractions, with the exception of towing and service fees, must be appealed within fourteen days of the infraction date.
Please Note:
  • Appeals will not be accepted after 14 days past issue date
  • Appeals will not be processed with out supporting documentation
  • Appeals will not be reviewed with previous outstanding tickets on the account
  • Photographs are now taken with each citation
  • Provide specific details including; Pay & Display receipts, Special Event tickets or other supporting documentation pertinent to your appeal (appeals without supporting documentation will not be processed)
  • Be as precise as possible
  • Indicate that the problem, for which you were cited, has been corrected. (eg: purchased a parking pass)
  • Indicate that you have made yourself familiar with the University parking rules and regulations
Important Information
The Appeals Committee considers the following information (not an exclusive list):
Circumstances, weather, lot, area on campus, parking history, fairness for all, other similar complaints
The probability of a successful appeal is extremely unlikely - less than 1% - for the following infractions:
  • Traffic tickets issued by the Campus Community Police
  • Parked in a Disabled Space
  • Parked in Fire Lane or Emergency Route

The decision of the Appeals Committee is final. There are no further appeals.

I am aware that pictures are taken with each citation and I have read and understand the above conditions.
