Contest a Parking Ticket             
You can contest the validity of a parking ticket but not the fine amount. However you need to do this within 30 days of the ticket's issue date or within 14 days from the date of the second notice to avoid an increase to the fine. All disputes and requests for a hearing must be done in writing. To request an in-person hearing simply check the box on the back of the ticket or 2nd notice and return it to ABM Parking Services, 211 B Elm Street, Rockford, IL 61101. Upon receipt the City will schedule you for the next available hearing date and will send notification of such hearing. When you appear at the hearing be sure to bring all supporting documentation with you.

To request a mail hearing simply check the box on the back of the ticket or 2nd notice and return it with all supporting documentation to ABM Parking Services, 211 B Elm Street, Rockford, IL 61101.  Mail hearings take 30 days to process from the date we receive the dispute.  You will be notified as to the Hearing Officer's ruling.

Examples of supporting documentation include but are not limited to: State Vehicle Registration, copy of bill of sale or trade in paperwork, name and address of person you sold the car to and date of sale, copy of the handicap placard, and any other information you believe supports your case.

Tickets that have reached the Final Notice stage can no longer be disputed.
