Toll Ticket Appeal
These standard instructions are for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice about your case. If you choose to represent yourself, you are bound by the same rules and procedures as an attorney.

  • What is an E-470 appeal?
    • 1. What is an E-470 toll ticket appeal?
      • You are asking the court to look at the decision made by a hearing officer related to a ticket you received for toll evasion on a toll road.  You must have gone through a hearing with the E-470 Transit Authority before starting a toll ticket appeal with the county court.

        A toll road is usually a highway or road that is maintained (repaired, plowed, etc.) by a private company, not the state, county, or city.  These are tickets received on E-470.
