Appeal St Louis parking citations in under two minutes

cbs describes how donotpay can help people save millions on parking citations

Parking Violations Bureau of the City of St Louis is in charge of parking spaces around the city, violations, regulations, payment, and contest options. On the city’s official website, there is a section devoted to this department, along with its policies, fines, and the latest news about the changes in the parking infrastructure. 

Believing that the process of disputing an infraction is complicated and a waste of time and money, most residents decide to pay the fine without giving it much thought. They don’t want to bother with it since they don’t think it will produce a favorable outcome. 

What they don’t know is that the DoNotPay app has a fantastic success rate of 74% in appealing fines in any city in the US, completely free of charge, and most of all, in less than 120 seconds. All it takes is to follow a few simple steps: 

  1. Access the app on your web browser  or download the app for your iPhone
  2. Answer a few short questions about the citation you want to beat
  3. Take a picture of your infraction 

As a result, our app will provide you with a fine appeal letter written according to the policies and regulations of your area to help you beat the ticket more efficiently. 

Is beating a fine really worth my time?

Usually, people don’t want to bother with this problem, so they pay what they owe, but a minority of them decide to fight a ticket, which is their legal right. Those who have tried have efficiently disputed all their infractions so far. 

In the City of St Louis, you have 30 calendar days from the issuance date to either pay your citation or contest it to avoid the addition of late fees and penalties. If you decide to appeal, you can do it in one of two possible ways: 

  • In-person -- by visiting the Parking Violations Bureau at the following address
    • 229 North 7th Street (between Olive and Pine Streets)
    • St. Louis, MO 63101
    • Office hours: 7:30 am -- 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday

Bring your infraction, and any evidence you may have to support your claims. They will set a date for a court hearing where you will have the opportunity to explain the situation and successfully dispute your citation. 

  • By mail -- writing a letter containing the detailed description of your problem, along with your infraction and all documentation to help you convince the hearing officer, and sending all of this to: 
    • Parking Violations Bureau (PVB)
    • PO Box 78459
    • St. Louis, MO 63178-8459

Wait for them to notify you of their decision or the date of your hearing.

In case the authorities deny your contest within the time limit, you will have to pay the original amount of the fine, along with the late fees and additional penalties for missing the deadline. 

Given the time this appeal process takes, and the complications it may cause with your deadline, it is entirely understandable why people go for paying the infraction instead of disputing it. 

But with the DoNotPay app, it will take you minutes to complete the dispute letter and then use it to overturn your fine in any city in the US! 

Is contesting with DoNotPay time-saving?

As noted, the procedure of disputing is hard, and it is also going to take you a while to draw up a legitimate appeal letter, and not lose some of the evidence in the process. With DoNotPay, you can keep all your documentation in one place by uploading it to the app, and the app will, in turn, use the documents you sent to generate the letter you need to contest your infraction. Plus, our app will take only a couple of minutes to get it done.

    2. PO Box 78459

What consequences will I have to face if I don’t pay my citation in time?

The time limit for paying or contesting parking tickets in St Louis is 30 days from the issuance date. If you neither pay nor appeal your infraction, the authorities will start adding late fees and penalties. 

After the first 30 days, they will double the amount of your original citation. If you still don’t pay after 45 days, they triple your ticket. In case you accumulate four unpaid citations, you are considered ‘’a parking scofflaw’’, and your vehicle will immediately be booted, and even towed. 

When you pay the original amount of your infraction, all the late fees, and penalties, along with the $50 for boot removal fee, your vehicle will be released. If your car gets towed, then you have to settle your original debt, and additional tow and storage fees. 

Do my outstanding tickets show up on my record?

No. Parking tickets are considered less severe than traffic or speeding ones, so they don’t appear on your driver’s record. But if you accumulate more than four of them, you will have problems with the DMV because they won’t allow you to renew your license and registration. So, it is always better to prevent this from happening and either pay the fine in the given time frame or dispute it with our app.  

Do I have to pay parking citations I receive in another state?

Of course. No matter where you get fined, it is your responsibility to pay the infraction or contest it. In this case, the DMV can also discover your unpaid fines, and pursue you, so you will have to face the consequences. Luckily for you, the DoNotPay app allows you to beat tickets issued in any city in the US in a matter of seconds. 

Do I have to pay infractions I get in a rental car?

Yes. You are responsible for all the violations you make. It is always best to pay or contest them on your own than to have the rental agency such as Hertz, charge your credit for the citation along with the additional administrative fee of up to $100. 

Can my car insurance go up?

Parking violations don’t affect your car insurance as the car insurance companies such as Progressive,  don’t get notified when you commit them. But if you have more outstanding infractions, and the DMV doesn’t allow you to renew your license and registration, you won’t be able to insure your car either. It is best to read your contract with the insurance company to be sure.
