Your best defense against money-hungry meter maids might be your phone. Fixed, an app in the beta stage in San Francisco, will help you fight tickets. All you need to do is take a picture of the ticket and any other evidence that might be helpful, and upload it to the app. It'll then tell you the probability of getting the ticket dismissed and send a contest letter on your behalf to the court.
Of course there's a catch; the app's creator needs to eat. If your ticket is dismissed, you have to pay Fixed 25 percent of what the ticket would have cost. If you end up having to pay the ticket, you don't owe Fixed shit. It sounds like a less expensive lawyer without the cheap suit.
