Appeal to a parking violation notice

The following DO NOT constitute valid reasons for dismissing a ticket:
  • You did not see the sign (NO PARKING, HANDICAPPED)
  • You did not know that parking was restricted (permit parking) in the area where the violation occurred
  • You were only there for a short time
  • You have never been ticketed for this violation before
  • Obstructing traffic or parking on a crosswalk, in front of a handicapped ramp or sidewalk is a violation even if it is only partial
  • There were no other places to park
  • You think that the fine is too high.
BROCKTON APPEAL PROCEDURES

In accordance with Massachusetts General Laws, all parking violations must be paid within 21 days of issue.  Any appeal after 21 days from the date the violation was issued are held solely at the discretion of the hearing officer and may not be granted.  If you are appealing the parking ticket(s) listed on the notice you received follow these procedures.

All appeals must be in writing. Forms must be submitted and are available at

Brockton Police Department
Records Room
7 Commercial Street
Brockton, MA  02302

Your written appeal should state your case clearly and concisely as to why you believe that you should not be held accountable to pay the parking ticket(s) in dispute.  Include any maps, drawings or photographs to support your case.

You will not be charged any late fees during the appeal process. If you are submitting the appeal within 5 days of the 21 day deadline, late fees may still accrue.  The hearing office will remove any late fees that are incorrectly applied when a decision is made.  Tickets not appealed within the 21 day time period or failure to appear at hearing will not have late fees removed.
