Getting a parking ticket is enough to ruin your day. You have to pay money – and get absolutely, positively nothing in return.
And much of the time, the tickets are just a revenue-generating machine for cities.
Well, there’s now an app called Fixed that can help you fight traffic tickets – and hopefully get out of paying them.
The app is amazingly simple. All you do is take a picture of your recent parking ticket and upload it onto the app. The Fixed team analyzes it for errors.
They also use Google Street View to look at the signs where tickets are issued. If a parking sign can’t be easily seen, tickets are often dismissed.
Fixed charges 25 percent of the fine if you win and is on pace to be in the nation’s top 100 cities within the next two years.
