Appeal Citations

Administrative Review (First Appeal):  To contest a parking citation, the responsible party must submit an "Administrative Review" to the issuing agency within a period of twenty-one (21) calendar days from the violation date or fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of the Notice of Delinquent Parking Violation.  All rights to appeal are forfeited after these specific periods.

There are two ways to submit an Administrative Review appeal:  Obtain and submit an Administrative Review Form at the Campus Police Services' office at either the Fremont or Newark Campus, or online by going to https://www.paymycite.com/.

The Administrative Review Form must be fully completed to include a specific explanation as to why the citation should be dismissed.  Be sure to include any supporting documentation for your explanation.  The review will be conducted by the Chief of Campus Police.  The person requesting the review will be notified in writing by mail of the results. 

Not having a valid parking permit visibly displayed, even if you possess one, will not be dismissed.  

Hearing Examiner Review (Second Appeal):  If you are dissatisfied with the results of the Administrative Review, you may request a second appeal called a "Hearing Examiner Review" within 21 days of the date of decision of the Administrative Review.  All rights to the Hearing Examiner Review are forfeited after these specific periods. 

Obtain and submit the Hearing Examiner Review Form to the Fremont Campus Police Services' office.  The fine amount must be deposited (check or money order only) with the submission of the Hearing Examiner Review form.  There will be no review without the fine deposit.  The Hearing Examiner Review Form must be fully completed to include a specific explanation as to why the results of the Administrative Review should be overturned.  Be sure to include any supporting documentation for your explanation. 

The review will be conducted by someone other than the Chief of Campus Police.  The person will be notified in writing of the results of the review.

Civil Court Appeal (Final Appeal):  If you are dissatisfied with the results of the Hearing Examiner Review, you may request a civil hearing.  Within 30 calendar days from the date of decision of the Hearing Examiner Review, an appeal may be filed with the Small Claims Court (civil court).  This is heard by the Fremont-Newark Superior Court Traffic Bureau located at 39439 Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont, California.  The court will require you to pay a filing fee plus any other applicable court charges and fees.  The appeal is heard in the court with the notice of parking agency's file in the case submitted as evidence.  A copy of the notice of parking violation is admitted into evidence as prima facie evidence of the violation.  If the other two hearings are upheld, the fine posted for the Hearing Examiner Review and the filing fee for the Small Claims Court are forfeited.  There is no further appeal process after the court hearing.
