You question cut off but if what you are asking is whether you can contest the ticket the answer is yes. Whenever you receive a parking or driving violation etc you have the opportunity to plead not guilty. A court date will be set at which time you go and present to the court why you are in fact not guilty.
If you have a witness who can testify that you were not in fact guilty than you would want them to come with you to court or you may want to call a local attorney to see about having an affidavit drafted if they may not be willing to go to court with you
Than it is up to the judge and you could obviously still be found guilty but as I said if you believe you are not its your right to plead it as such
