This letter may be used to appeal a parking fine which has been imposed by a local authority such as a city or municipal council.
Each parking ticket authority in Australia has its own process that people must follow in order to appeal parking fines. Some authorities have online systems that must be used and do not accept appeals of parking fines by letter. For those authorities, this letter will not be needed.
However, many other authorities do accept appeals of parking fines by letter. Some also have application forms which can be downloaded, filled out and submitted. This letter will be useful in both of these cases. Even if an application form is being downloaded and filled out, it is a good idea to use this letter as a cover letter.
Therefore, it is a good idea to check on the procedure for the relevant authority before going ahead with preparing this letter. For authorities that accept written applications (with or without an application form), this document provides a quick and easy way to present your argument in a professional and compelling manner.
This letter can be adapted to list numerous grounds of appeal. Supporting evidence may also be attached to the letter. Some typical grounds of appeal that may be provided include:
