Notice of Parking Violation Hearing Decision

So last year on October 5th I received a 50$ parking ticket on my motorcycle in San Francisco. I've been fighting this ticket for over six months now, and after losing and failing over and over, in my last appeal I finally won. Here is the text of the letter I got from the Department Of Parking And Traffic.
Re: Protest of parking citation XXXXXXXXX
Dear Mr. Wood:
A hearing was initiated in response to your protest.
After reviewing all the evidence, I find the citation invalid.
A field survey has confirmed your claim that the vehicle was not in violation and was cited outside the tow away zone.
You can expect a refund in the mail in 1 to 2 weeks. No further action is required.
Hearing Officer

    yes, yes, but what were your court fees getting there?

    hmm… not sure what you mean about “court fees getting there” I had to pay them the 50$ for the ticket and they’re refunding it to me now.

    Congratulations. I’m in awe of your perseverence. The only ticket I’ve ever gotten was while driving through Oregon on the way back to school. The cop was completely in the wrong and being a lying bastard… but I had to do all of my protesting in writing. After 2 appeals, I gave in and payed the bastards. I had finals to take. But I’m still left with a twinge of bitterness over the situation.
