Appeals – FAQ’s

Robbins Parking manage each lot on behalf of the Landowner/Property Management Company. We have certain rules and regulations to follow just as parkers parking in the lot must follow.
A patroller’s role is to enforce the rules of the lot, and even though at times it may seem unfair that you received a ticket, there is usually a valid reason- which we would be more than happy to explain to you.
When speaking with one of our patrollers or calling our office, we ask that you treat them with kindness and respect. This is very much appreciated and will help both you and the customer service representative in dealing with your parking notice. Please note that the usual appeal time is 7 days after the notice was received. After this time, any appeals outcomes may be limited.

FAQ For Appeals

I paid for parking. Why was I ticketed?
Common mistakes when purchasing parking at the meter or on Honk are: Incorrect license plate, entering an “O” instead of a zero in your plate number, entering the wrong zone/lot on Honk mobile, not displaying your receipt. If you believe you were wrongly ticketed, please call or email our office to appeal within 7 days of the notice issue date.

I was ticketed for exceeding the 3-hour limit, but I was not there for 3 hours.
If you visit a timed lot multiple times in the day, the patroller will not know if you have left in between visiting. The patroller also leaves the lot, so they have to assume you were parked over the time limit. If this is the case and you had left the lot, please call or email our office to appeal.

I had my parking permit displayed but was still ticketed.
If your permit is not clearly displayed on your rear-view mirror or dash, the patroller has no way of knowing you are permitted to park there. Please glance back when leaving your vehicle to ensure it is visible. If you are ticketed for this reason, please submit a photo of your parking pass to to appeal.

I got a ticket at one of your parkades but I thought I had to pay when exiting.
At certain parkades, the attendant will issue you an Honor Notice for the parking charges. This is not a parking ticket. When you enter the parkade, you will pull a ticket stub and then display this on your dash. The attendant will use the time you entered the lot to determine how much you owe in parking charges. If the ticket stub is not displayed, the attendant will charge you for the full day. If you believe the amount is incorrect, please submit a photo of your ticket stub to for further review.
