Parking tickets are a drag and sometimes so unfair. Well most of us would like to fight them, we usually just end up paying them in the end. But that doesn’t have to be the case with the new Fixed app! The web app is designed to beat parking tickets…but for a price. The app charges you 25% of the ticket price if they get it dismissed, which is much better than having to pay full price! And if they can’t beat the ticket, then you don’t pay them anything. All you have to do is take a photo of your ticket and enter the violation code, choose your reason to contest its and let them do the rest! They’ll show you what percentage of those types of tickets are usually overturned and then show a list of possible reasons it might be found invalid. If you have a case, the app will then ask you to capture any additional footage/evidence that might help your case and then digitally sign a letter.
Fixed then contacts their team of legal researches who know about local traffic laws and who will review each case before printing out the letter and submitting it to the city via mail. It’ll be available for those living in San Francisco, CA first but its co-founders, David Sanghera and DJ Burdick, want to expand into the top 100 U.S. cities over the next 18 months. Sign up on their site to see if you can fight your parking ticket, but beware – with the overload of new customers wanting to contest their parking tickets, they’re pretty overwhelmed right now and you might have to continue your sign up process a few times.
