Overview

UWF Parking Services issues tickets to ensure that students, staff, and visitors have access to the parking spaces they need and pay for, to provide consistent enforcement of all parking rules and regulations, and to maintain an equitable parking system for all members of the university community.

However, Parking Services realizes that some citations need to be addressed, discussed, defended, and in some cases rescinded, because of errors made by the student patrolers or the extenuating circumstances of the one being ticketed. So, in accordance with UWF Reg 5.001 Parking and Registration regulations, anyone wishing to appeal a parking ticket must file a Level One Appeal online within seven calendar days of issuance of the citation. Be sure to have your ticket handy before appealing.

To maximize the chances of success for your appeal, make sure you provide specific factual information that supports why the ticket should be voided. Although extenuating circumstances may infrequently be the basis for a successful appeal, disregarding UWF parking policies usually leads to an upheld citation.

Keep in mind that a Level One Appeal is heard by the Parking Services Manager, that a Level One Appeal aims to correct only obvious issuance errors, and that all rejected Level One Appeals are automatically forwarded to the Parking Violations Appeal Board (PVAB) for a Level Two Appeal.
