How to Write an Effective Appeal
If you have received a violation, and you would like to appeal it, you have 5 business days in which to submit a "Notice of Objection". This can be completed either by letter, online, or by using a form available at either Parking Services, the Honour Court Information Centre located on York Blvd. , or the Glendon Parking Office at the Greenhouse.
- Keep the information on the appeal as short as possible while still providing pertinent information.
- Indicate that the problem, for which you were cited, has been corrected, or, if you are appealing your first citation that you have made yourself familiar with University parking regulations.
- Address the issue for which the violation was issued. Tangential matters cannot be considered.
- Avoid the temptation to editorialize. We are aware that convenient parking and loading zones are, at peak times, limited.
- Avoid confusing parking issues with issues of security.
Appeals are almost never granted for any of the following listed reasons:
- “Everybody parks there, and 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 did not 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).”
- “How was I to know it was going to snow last night?
