Fixed, the app which helps the users fight their parking ticket has been acquired by a law firm called Lawgix. The app, which had got into troubles many times from the government and the local administration side, has often struggled to make cities accept its model of online payment of the ticket fee etc.
There was so much of ignorance for the app, that it had to close down a bunch of its business in order to survice last year. It was the time when the App had stopped its parking ticket submission vertical to focus on providing traffic citations.
The idea behind the app was to help the users automate the ticket fighting process. The drivers just had to take a picture of the ticket and submit it online of the official website. The app then helped the user with drafting a customized letter to the administration with the help of any error they got in order to save the driver from possible ticket price. However, if the driver was proved to be guilty, it further assisted them by providing an online payment option to finish the ticket.
The government was behind the model as it directly resulted in decreasing the revenue of the government. Hence, it was eventually blocked in cities like San Francisco, Oakland and LA. That was the time when the app started to work on the traffic citations.
The app claims that it processed over 500 tickets every week, out of which, over 90% users did not have to pay the fine, courtesy, the law team at Fixed.
Fixed has raised $1.8 Million in seed funding from investors including Mark Cuban, Slow Ventures, Structure VC and Paul Buchheit.
