ok, at my school we have 3 parking lots that are near my dorm. 1 of them you can't park in overnight during the winter (until april 15) coming home one night, there are NO SPOTS in any of the 2 lots available. except for the small row of faculty/staff parking in the lots that we can park overnight in. i decide to park there, since faculty/staff can just... use the whole empty lot that's unavailable to me now. i get a ticket. i don't think this is fair, as there was no where else to park.
how should i write an appeal? i've never done something like this before.
