Citations Appeals

Appealing a citation

If you believe your citation was issued in error, you have the option to appeal to IU Parking Operations within 14 days of the citation issue date. Note that a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space, just as the lack of a space does not justify a parking violation.

Appeals may be granted if:

  • There is substantial evidence that you did not commit the violation for which the citation was issued, or
  • Circumstances were not under your control, and prior to being issued the citation, you made some demonstrable attempt to notify IU Parking Operations of the situation—or you can produce written verification from a witness to the situation establishing that the situation was unusual and cannot reasonably occur again.

More information about appeals can be found on individual campus websites.
