To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to contest the parking violation citation # -----. I received this ticket in violation of section MC 80.61 – Standing in Alley. However, I do not believe I deserved this ticket for a few reasons.
Attached are pictures of both the entrance to the alley, and the curb where my car was parked. In the picture of the entrance to the alley, there are no signs stating that there is no parking in the alley. Furthermore, there are no signs on either the building on the left, or the fence on the right. If I had seen at least one sign stating “No Parking in Alley”, I would not have parked there.
Additionally, in the picture of the curb on the left, it is not painted red. If it were painted red, I would not have parked there. If you look closely, the curb is marked with tire marks, showing that cars have parked there in the past. Due to the fact that it was not red and there was evidence of the previous parking of cars, I decided to park there.
In the risk of sounding redundant, if I had known that it was illegal to park in the alley, I would not have parked there. And that is why I do not believe I deserved the parking ticket. If you could please waive the $45 fee, I would be very appreciative.
If you do not decide to waive the parking fee, I would like to request a reduction in the amount due. Please consider this as an alternative as I do not feel it was fair for me to receive the ticket.
Lastly, it would be nice if someone could put a sign up in the alley so future drivers will know not to park there. Perhaps you can use some of the money you receive from me if you do not waive the fee.
Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.
