Legal Question: Can I Contest A Parking Ticket If My Paid Parking Sticker Fell Off?

My paid parking sticker fell off the window and I was issued a ticket. Can I contest this? If so, what should I do?

Yes, you can fight this by going to the municipal court and asking for a contested infraction hearing. Keep your paid parking sticker and bring it to court and tell the judge what happened. In my experience, when you take the time to go to traffic court and actually hand up tangible proof to back up what you are saying, most judges will give you the benefit of the doubt. Sometimes this means they dismiss the ticket completely, sometimes it means you get the fine reduced.
