00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:06,240
Hello and welcome back. Have you ever received a parking ticket or fine you believe was unjustified?

2
00:00:06,240 --> 00:00:12,040
Well, you're not alone. Many drivers have been in the same situation and have successfully

3
00:00:12,040 --> 00:00:17,020
appealed their fines. In this video I'm going to give you some tips on how to appeal your

4
00:00:17,020 --> 00:00:23,000
car parking fines and increase your chances of winning. The first step is to understand

5
00:00:23,000 --> 00:00:27,960
why you were fined in the first place and what reasons you may have for an appeal. You

6
00:00:27,960 --> 00:00:32,880
should check the penalty notice and make sure that the offence regulation code matches its

7
00:00:32,880 --> 00:00:38,880
title and the make and registration number match your vehicle. You should also check if the parking

8
00:00:38,880 --> 00:00:44,520
signs were visible and where you parked or if they were covered by any structures. Similarly,

9
00:00:44,520 --> 00:00:49,520
you should check if the bay markings were clear and visible in the first place or if there were

10
00:00:49,520 --> 00:00:55,560
any signs of markings that should have been there for the offence you were booked for. If you find

11
00:00:55,560 --> 00:01:01,280
any discrepancies in any of the above areas then you have a strong case for an appeal. You should

12
00:01:01,280 --> 00:01:08,160
gather as much evidence as you can in your defence such as photos, mechanical repair seats or

13
00:01:08,160 --> 00:01:14,320
medical certificates. Also, be sure to act quickly before the payment due date as every reminder

14
00:01:14,320 --> 00:01:20,040
sent to you typically incurs further penalty fees. You can dispute a parking infringement in

15
00:01:20,040 --> 00:01:26,200
writing with an explanation or appeal letter including the supporting evidence. Here at

16
00:01:26,200 --> 00:01:32,440
Parking Made Easy we have compiled a broad guide on how to appeal car parking fines and have also

17
00:01:32,440 --> 00:01:38,160
provided several sample letter templates for you to choose from. They are here in this block for

18
00:01:38,160 --> 00:01:43,360
extra evidence and information. It's important to note that the success rate of appeals can very

19
00:01:43,360 --> 00:01:48,160
greatly depending on your local council but if you believe you have a strong case it's well worth

20
00:01:48,160 --> 00:01:53,360
a try. Trust me, don't be taken for a ride and pay questionable parking fines without trying to

21
00:01:53,360 --> 00:01:59,600
appeal them first. In conclusion, appealing parking fines can be a tedious process but it can save

22
00:01:59,600 --> 00:02:05,080
you a lot and lot of money in the long run. Remember to check the penalty notice and gather as much

23
00:02:05,080 --> 00:02:11,760
evidence as you can in your defence. Choose the most appropriate letter template for your case

24
00:02:11,760 --> 00:02:18,440
and act quickly before the payment due date. Thanks for watching and we wish you the best of

25
00:02:18,440 --> 00:02:24,960
luck in your parking fine appeals. From here at Parking Made Easy we do wish you the best and

26
00:02:24,960 --> 00:02:42,720
