Can I appeal a parking violation?

Yes, everyone has 21 days from date of ticket violation to either pay or appeal the parking violation. Appeals must be submitted to our office in writing and can be made via:

  •   By mailing in a detailed statement on why the parking violation is being appealed (Parking Administration, 4 Boltwood Ave).
  •   Using our online Parking Ticket Appeal form here.
  •   By email (parking@amherstma.gov) including a detailed statement on why the parking violation is being appealed. 

Parking Appeals cannot be made via the telephone.
