Citations and Appeals

What To Do If You Get a Ticket

If you receive a parking citation you can appeal it. On the back of each citation is information on how to contest the citation. If you do decide to contest a citation, keep in mind the following:

  • DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE. You have 21 calendar days from the day the citation was issued to request an initial administrative review.
  • If you do not begin the initial review within 21 days, you have forfeited your right to appeal the citation at any level.
  • Once you request and/or submit appeal forms, it is your responsibility to find out if they were sent to you or received by us.
  • If you request appellate paperwork over the phone and do not receive it. you must call back by the 21st day.

Contact Parking Services at (951) 571-6190 for more information.

The appellate process that the District follows is set by the State of California. Therefore, time frames and deadline dates cannot and will not be extended, nor can any District personnel waive or modify this process.
