The first appeal process for a citation in Newport Beach is called an administrative review. You have three weeks from the date of ticket issue to request an administrative review, and a failure to do so within the stipulated time will automatically deem you responsible for paying the ticket.
You may choose to apply online, in person, or through the mail. When applying you need to submit all evidence substantiating your claim, including a written defense stating the reason you believe an appeal is justifiable in the light of the circumstances that warranted your citation.
The result of the decision may take less than two weeks or up to eight weeks, which you can view afterward at the website, depending on the complexity of investigations.
