Parkingticket on iPhones
Parkingticket.com has announced fresh compatibility of its site with the Safari web browser on the iPhone. The support enables users to go online the moment they receive a parking ticket, and either pay or fight a charge. When filling out a report, the program suggests that people use their iPhone to shoot and send pictures of the sign in front of their vehicle, and a full perspective shot of the entire street that shows all the signs and the street address of where the ticket was issued.
When it comes to making a report, users simply go to the site, create a free account, and choose an action. According to the company, all reports created that fight the ticket require users to post 50 percent of the fine amount. In addition, the site ends up keeping the deposited money if it succeeds in getting a ticket dismissed. If a ticket is reduced instead of dismissed, the company keeps half the amount saved, and refunds the rest. Should it fail to get a ticket dismissed or reduced, customers are said to get their posted payment back plus an extra $10.
