The decision of the Appeals Committee is final and fines are considered due when the decision is rendered. Unfamiliarity with Western University's traffic and parking regulations does not constitute grounds for appeal. The following reasons are not considered grounds for an appeal:
"Everybody parks there / I am the only one who got a ticket."
"I was only there for five or ten minutes."
"I've parked there for the last five weeks (months, years etc.) and I've never been cited before."
"I didn't know."
"I thought it was a space."
"I didn't see the sign."
"I can't afford the fine."
"I had to use the washroom facilities (or had a sick friend that had to use the washroom facilities)."
"My permit/pass/parking receipt was not properly displayed because..."
"I parked on landscaping/hash lines/end of aisle/reserved space because there were no spaces available."
