A parking citation is a civil violation. It is not a criminal offense. By State law, request for an appeal must be received by the due date or all rights to an appeal are lost, and in accordance with State law you may no longer contest the citation.
The owner is ultimately responsible for the actions of the vehicle and bears the burden of proof when contesting parking citations.
Parking citations issued by the City of Fontana are processed by a contract company. All payment, appeals, and general correspondence are handled through Ticket Wizard 5000.
