Appeals Review Process


PTS employees performing a first review of appeals judge appeals by certain established criteria.  If there is any debate about the appeal during the review, the appeal is escalated to the full Appeals Board for review.

Reviews

Technical Review

Was the citation issued correctly in the field? 

  • Citations must meet Officer Requirements, Field Standards and Citation Requirements to be technically accurate.
    • OFFICER REQUIREMENTS: These are the circumstances under which a particular violation is issued. If multiple violations are possible in a single parking space, the other violations are listed with explanations as to which violation is appropriate (See Disability Parking for an example).
    • FIELD STANDARDS – These are the field markings (paint, signs, stickers, etc.) that are required to enforce the violation. For example, it may not be possible to enforce a yellow zone if the paint is covered by leaves or snow.
    • CITATION REQUIREMENTS – These are items that must be present on the citation in order to enforce the violation. For instance, a permit number must be recorded if a permit violation is being enforced.  You must see both the permit number and location to see if an “Improper Zone” violation can be enforced.
    • Technical criteria are listed for each violation in the following pages.
    • Appeals should be granted for citations where officers did not issue technically accurate citations.
      • The citation is voided and is not held against the customer in future reviews.
      • Inform Enforcement Supervisor of all citations that fail to meet technical review.

Situational Review

Are there documented extenuating circumstances that would allow the appeal to be granted?  

  • These are circumstances beyond the control of the customer. Examples include:  medical emergencies, vehicle break downs, law enforcement actions, etc. 
  • Documentation must be provided to support the appeal. Authorized administrative requests qualify as documentation.
  • When an appeal is granted for extenuating circumstances, the citation is reduced to a warning and is considered in future reviews.

Policy Review

By Policy, can the citation be reduced to a warning?

  • Examples include: Meter violations may be reduced to a warning if it is the first violation for the customer.
  • Circumstances under which a citation may be reduced to a warning by office staff are listed for each violation in the following pages.
  • Appeals that are approved by policy are reduced to a warning and are considered in future customer account reviews.

Appeal Review

Is the appeal reason valid?

  • Legitimate appeals that cannot be voided or reduced to a warning under the Technical Review, Situational Review or Policy Review steps are escalated to the Appeals Committee for review.
  • In general, the following appeal reasons are not grounds for dismissing a citation:
    • “I was only at the meters 5 minutes...” or “I was just 5 minutes late…”
    • “I just ran into the building to drop something off…”
    • “I couldn’t find anywhere else to park…”
    • “I can’t afford to pay the citation…”
    • “Someone told me I could park there…”
    • “There was nothing that told me I couldn’t park there…”
    • “Other people were doing it….”
    • “There were plenty of spaces so I didn’t displace anyone…”
    • “You are supposed to get a Warning each semester/year…”
    • “I didn’t know I couldn’t park there…”
    • “I’ve been parking there all semester and haven’t gotten a citation before…”
    • “I thought the rules were different during finals week…”
    • “I was running late…”

PROCEDURES

Results of the initial review process are recorded on an Appeal Sheet.  These are recorded in T2 by a second party, to provide checks and balances on the review process, and are filed.

  • For appeals that are granted on technical review, citations are voided and the customer is not responsible for the citation.
  • For appeals that are granted on situational or policy review, citations are reduced to a warning and the customer is not responsible for the citation.
  • For appeals which have a valid appeal reason, but cannot be granted through the technical, situational and policy review, appeals are escalated directly to the full Appeals Board for external review. Students are not required to pay for the citation unless the Appeals Board denies their appeal.
  • For appeals which do not have a valid appeal reason and cannot be granted through the technical, situational and policy review, appeals are denied. Customer is responsible for the citation. The customer may appeal to the full Appeals Board; however, they must pay the citation before the Appeals Board will review their appeal.  The customer has 14 days from the appeal Results Applied date to pay the citation and file a second appeal.

When looking at appeals in T2, you can identify where the appeals are in the overall appeals process from the Citation Manager.  A citation with a single appeal listed has only had a first appeal.  The appeal status is either “Pending”, meaning the appeal is waiting for a first review by PTS staff, or, “Resolved”, meaning that the PTS staff has made a decision on the first appeal.

A citation with two appeals listed has been through a first review.  The appeal has either been escalated directly to the Appeals Board, in
