Teen creates site for motorists to fight back against parking tickets

An 18-year-old came up with the idea after getting 30 tickets in London

Teen creates site for motorists to fight back against parking tickets
The teenager built the site over the summer having scanned thousands of pages of documents released by a Freedom of Information request.

The new website directs motorists to pick 12 options, asks them to fill in their details and then creates a customised appeal to the relevant council – the entire process takes less than a minute.

Due to high traffic volumes the site crashed within days of launching, the student has since expanded its capacity as well as introducing new features.

Mr Browder, who is due to study computer science and economics at California’s Stanford University this autumn, told the Daily Mail that he realised councils operate a “tickets first and ask questions later” policy after receiving 30 tickets parking around his school in Camden.

“I was given the parking tickets for trivial reasons.

“I have had to spend around one hundred hours of valuable study time writing appeals to these tickets, many of which have been successful,” he told the Daily Mail.

“Unfortunately, many recipients of these tickets don’t have the time, legal knowledge or energy to appeal.”

Mr Browder intends to keep the website free for users and claims that not only is it quick to use, it also offers the best possible chance for motorists to win their appeals.
