Fighting parking fines? There’s an app for that. Just released, it’s the first app that actively helps citizens contest their parking tickets. Through a collaboration with a veteran parking ticket appeals judge, the app, named Parking Ticket Pundit NYC, shepherds the user through a number of criteria that will automatically invalidate a ticket and get the user a full refund or cancellation of the ticket.
If none of the criteria are met, the app helps the user get an automatic reduction of his or her parking ticket fine. If the user still wants to contest the ticket, he or she has the option of emailing the details of the ticket and the circumstances surrounding it to our parking ticket judge, who will respond with advice as to whether or not the user should pursue an appeal. The app also offers an official guide to parking, and a large database of tips for avoiding parking tickets in the future.
Currently, the app is only geared toward New York City parking tickets, but the developers are in the process of expanding into other major cities very soon.
