Bylaw Notice Dispute Process
Get the facts before you act
Before you apply to dispute a parking ticket, keep these things in mind:
- A paid ticket can't be disputed.
- An adjudicator can't reduce the ticket amount.
- Fewer than 5% of tickets adjudicated are cancelled.
- A $25 fee is charged in addition to your ticket if your adjudication process is unsuccessful.
- The adjudicator makes a decision based on facts. Personal circumstances are not considered.
Submit a separate application for each ticket you choose to dispute.
