Request for parking tickets issued from January 2010 through October 2011 as well as the number of appeals filed in that period, and of those appealed, the number of tickets reversed or dismissed.
· 162, 808 tickets issued
· 12,812 of those tickets were appealed
· Of those appealed, 2,897 were reversed or dismissed
Now I have to ask what the city defines as an appeal (something I didn't know about when I first filed this) - does that 12,812 number represent the number of tickets that were appealed to the City Office of Civil Appeals, or to JP Court 20, or both?and the city's response:
And is there a difference between a reversal and a dismissal?
These are appeals to the city’s office of civil appeals only.The state would have the records as far as how many requests for a court hearing were made in that period.
and if my math is right, it looks like the city pulled in $6,396,440 between January 2010 and October 2011.
