What driver out there hasn’t received a parking ticket at some point in their life? Whether you sat too long beside the curb, parked in an actual no-parking spot, or forgot to pay the parking meter altogether, most all of us have found an unwelcome slip of paper beneath one of our windshield wipers. And when that happens, most of the time, our first instinct is most likely to defend ourselves and have the courts dismiss the ticket into the round file bin.
Sadly, most of us aren’t lawyers and have next to no legal experience besides getting the parking ticket in the first place. And so we bite the bullet and we pay the ticket that we initially thought we’d get out of. If you are a person who is prone to getting a lot of parking tickets, first you might want to figure out what you’re doing wrong and fix it, and secondly, you could also just download a new iOS app called Fixed that will go to bat for you with the courts. Indeed, having the Fixed app could be compared to carrying around your own legal team in your pocket – but they only deal with parking tickets – so, if you were speeding, you might be out of luck.
How Does An App Walk Into A Courtroom?
Here’s how Fixed is supposed to work: if you get a parking ticket, all you have to do is take a picture of the citation along with the violation code and submit it. Once you do that, legal teams will look at the ticket and determine how successful they’ve been in the past at overturning similar tickets. They’ll also let you pick on some common reasons why the ticket should be dismissed in the first place.
So, Fixed will take care of all of the paperwork you need to get your parking ticket to go away. Then, when it’s all said and done, you will pay them 25% of the original ticket fee instead of paying the original 100% to the courts.
