How Does DoNotPay Save Time?

No lawyer. No hassle.

Every organization has a different way to submit appeals, and composing your case can take a while, or even drive you to seek out legal assistance to help you submit it.

Turn a whole-day endeavor into a quick five minutes with DoNotPay. We’re designed for busy people who may not have time to submit appeals the old-fashioned way.

Are You Sure I Don’t Need a Lawyer?

We’re sure. Contesting your ticket with legal aid may end up costing you more than the ticket itself, and lawyers can charge $100 to over $1000 hourly. Don’t break the bank: use DoNotPay.

Why Can’t I Ignore My Parking Tickets?

What happens after you get a parking ticket?

You can:

  1. Pay it
  2. Appeal it
  3. Ignore it

Ignoring it, however, could lead to unintended consequences that may be worse than the original fine amount. Small fines can skyrocket due to late fees, and in the most extreme cases, lead to your car being taken and auctioned off by the state.

What is the range of consequences for not paying your parking tickets?

  • Your fine can increase the longer you leave it unpaid [most common]
  • Your car can get booted, and you’ll have to call the city and pay your fines [as well as an administrative fee] to get the boot removed
  • Your car can get towed, and you’ll have to pay to get it back
  • Your car can be seized by the state and auctioned off [in extreme cases]
  • Your case can get sent to a collection agency
  • The fine amount (and penalties) can be deducted from your tax refund
  • Your registration can be blocked
  • Your credit score can be affected

Common Q&A

Do I need to pay parking tickets while driving out of state?Yes. The penalties remain the same.
Can I get a ticket while waiting in the car?

Yes. Tickets you receive while still in the car are fully legal.
Do I have to pay for tickets I get in a rental car?Yes, and even more urgently. If you leave rental tickets unpaid, the rental company can pay them on your behalf, and can charge you:
  1. The original ticket amount
  2. Administrative fees
  3. Any legal fees incurred on your behalf by the company
