WinIt is a new app that helps users fight parking tickets in New York City, the one city in the world where parking and parking tickets are the biggest problem.
Anyone who lives in a major urban area like New York City knows how hard it is to find a parking space. There are all of the fire hydrants, loading zones, bus stops and business areas where parking is prohibited. And don’t forget the alternate side of the street parking rules.

Sometimes people get a ticket just for parking their car one inch into a no parking area.
And the fines for parking violations have skyrocketed over the years. The average person can barely afford to pay their legitimate tickets, let alone the ones which were falsely handed out.
How does it work?
A user simply takes a picture of their ticket and sends it to WinIt. Once they receive your ticket, the company will review it and schedule a hearing to contest it. WinIt will keep you posted on the status of your ticket by email.
The company boasts that it has partnered with seasoned NYC ticket specialists who have been disputing thousands of NYC parking tickets over the years. It states that they have helped clients save over $250 million in parking ticket fines over the last 20 years.
You only have to pay if they succeed in beating the ticket for you, but the cost is high: 50% of the money saved.
