Dispute a Parking Ticket - Process Step 1: Rapid Citation Review

As a convenience to the citizen, ATL+ has instituted an internal Rapid Citation Review Program designed to facilitate expeditious dismissals of citations issued in error. By requesting this service ATL+ will perform an internal investigation and make a recommendation to either uphold or dismiss the citation.

Upon completion of the ATL+ Rapid Citation Review, the City of Atlanta Department of Public Works - Administrative Review Team will evaluate upheld parking citations to ensure the validity of the citation.

This investigation process does not replace or affect the City’s citation dispute process; citations that are upheld in the ATL+ and City of Atlanta investigation process may still be disputed through the Municipal Court of Atlanta following this process.

Once an Enforcement Investigation is started, the citation in question will be suspended to prevent further notices and late fees being assessed during the investigation. Following the investigation, ATL+ will provide a written update reflecting the City’s findings.

To view photo documentation associated with your citation please proceed with a Rapid Citation Review. After entering your information, you will be presented with any photos associated with the citation.
