19-Year-Old Develops Robot Lawyer That Dismisses Your Unjust Parking Tickets

robot lawyer parking ticketsBy Vic Bishop

Simply and aptly named, DoNotPay, the ingenious business of a 19-year-old Londoner has already saved citizens of the UK an estimated £2.9 million in civil fines for unjust parking tickets. Less than 2 years old, the already popular ‘Robot Lawyer’ service has assisted people in absolving some 160,000 tickets by helping users take advantage of the appeals process, which is generally overlooked and underused.

DoNotPay uses a simple chat-based interface to guide users through a range of basic questions to establish if an appeal on their parking ticket is possible. These include queries on whether there were any visible parking signs at the location where the ticket was given. The AI lawyer then guides the user through the lengthy appeals process.

Receiving too many parking fines near his home, and discovering that most could be dismissed through the appeals process, Joshua Browder was motivated to act, and created the artificial intelligence service that became an instant hit. The service is now free and easy for anybody to use, providing public legal advice that not only helps people to avoid paying excessive parking fines, but also to avoid having to hire expensive law firms to represent them in such relatively simple legal matters.

‘I felt bad, because I knew that these drivers would be forced to go to exploitative law firms to get their issues resolved. To solve this problem, I realised that the best way to help people would be to create a computer program that could talk to users, generate appeals and answer questions like a human. I decided to create the UK’s first robot lawyer for consumers.’ – Joshua Browder

Browder, a Stanford University student of economics and computer science, has already turned down offers to buy him out; and now that the service is operating in London and New York City, he plans to open a DoNotPay site for the city of Seattle next.

The robot was designed by Joshua who received advice from professors. His original website took three weeks to build, but the robot has been trickier and longer to create.

Donotpay was originally built to appeal parking fines, allowing motorists to pick one of 12 reasons of defence, then enter the relevant details and send a custom-generated appeal created by the website’s algorithm to the council in question.

With a success rate of 40 per cent, based on an average parking penalty of £60, Joshua has helped thousands of drivers save a total of more than £2million in parking fines.

He then it expanded it to help with other compensation battles. [Source]

Revenue generation has sadly become a key priority for law enforcement agencies, and the reality is that government is frequently caught breaking their own laws in order to suck as much money as possible from the tax cattle. Browder’s views on exploitative policing are quite mature for someone of his demographic, and rather easy to comprehend for the public, especially to those who are familiar with the changing current of policing in the West, where departments now place greater emphasis on making money rather than ensuring public safety.

I think the people getting parking tickets are the most vulnerable in society. These people aren’t looking to break the law. I think they’re being exploited as a revenue source by the local government. [Source]

Screen-Shot-2016-06-28-at-7.34.39-PMWhat do you think about ideas like this? Are we seeing the evolution of revolution, where ingenious young entrepreneurs take on state corruption by making common sense solutions easy and affordable for the public?

How much longer will the state permit the existence of services like these which directly threaten the rich revenue streams of corporatized, for-profit government?

  1. Pulling
    the Teeth out of the Mouth of the Legal System

    many people realize that the legal system is a complete scam, and
    even fewer realize that it has teeth which can be easily pulled out,
    quite easily, in fact. The forceps that are used for this task come
    straight out of the legal system itself, believe it or not! These
    forceps come in various sizes, shapes and styles, but they all do the
    exact same job. They expose the contradictions and hypocrisies of
    the legal system, as well as the crimes that the legal system commits
    in order to function. All that one has to do to identify these
    forceps, and then use them, is to thoroughly read and understand a
    few key elements of the legal system, such as its basic premise for
    existence and from where it derives its authority. There are a few
    more which will be touched on as you read further. And as more and
    more of these tools are learned, much confidence in using them will
    be gained.

    legal system from its very beginnings, when the King’s Court was seen
    as becoming too corrupted to function properly as a place where
    people could get their due justice when they had been wronged, has
    been nothing but a huge scam. Not even the men who spoke so
    eloquently on behalf of the plaintiffs and defendants way back then
    ever saw that the legal system would be its own undoing one day! But
    that time has indeed come upon us now, and all that we have to do is
    open our eyes and greet it like a brand new day dawning upon us, with
    a cheery grin and a song in our heart.

    various policing agencies are a rather easy set of teeth to yank
    right out of that meat grinding maw of the extremely ugly beast we
    call the legal system. One way is to get into the record the fact
    that “witnesses” for the State enjoy being able to lie
    while under oath without any fear at all of perjury charges being
    filed against them. This is supposedly allowed under the guise of it
    furthering the interests of justice! Just HOW are the interests of
    justice served by certain people being allowed to lie while under an
    oath to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?
    That’s not justice at all, that’s criminal collusion to say the
    least! It makes a complete mockery of that oath! If this fact seems
    too incredible to believe, all one has to do is make a test by
    firstly reading Terry Reed’s book, Compromised; Bush, Clinton and the
    CIA. And then ask a lieyer (without telling him/her that you are
    onto their scam) if that is true or not. If they say that it’s a
    lie, then bring up the fact that that very thing happened in Reed’s
    case, and ask them how they can reconcile the two things. You see,
    ALL good attorneys always know the answers to their questions BEFORE
    they ask them! Unless it is one that comes out of some testimony,
    the answers of which will be verified later on to make sure that the
    truth was being told.

    pair of pliers that can be used is to show a conflict of interest
    with any of the actors involved. These so-called judges are a good
    place to start, since they are all just Executive Administrators who
    do not even swear a proper oath of office before they begin hearing
    cases. And they never disclose the fact that they are actually
    acting as the lead prosecutor in any case. These EAs take a portion
    of the proceeds of a court case in the form of a payment into their
    retirement account. In “income tax” cases, they can get a
    cash payment of ten thousand dollars upon a conviction!! Isn’t that
    a conflict of interest there? Do the arresting officers get any kind
    of a perk or bonus from their actions? Or does their department?
    Isn’t that biased policing?

    many years of study of the legal system and its machinations,
    something was suddenly realized. It is the incontrovertible fact
    that the entire legal system runs on fraud of one kind or another.
    And since fraud is a crime, exposing it for the whole world to see,
    negates any pretense that it is an honest system and one has to
    endure it. Let us look at the definition of just two words now, and
    see how they fit into this tool box of ways to beat the legal system
    at its own game, shall we? The first one is the word contract. It
    is defined in any law dictionary as having five essential elements to
    it, and the violation of even just one of them to any degree then
    renders the whole thing void. Those five elements are competent
    parties, subject matter, a legal consideration, mutuality of
    agreement and mutuality of obligation. Notice now that these are
    given in terms of absolutes, meaning that there is no lee way at all
    in any of them. They are either there or they are not. For how can
    anyone measure how much deviation from them can occur before the
    alleged contract is finally vacated? That is a very deadly arrow to
    pull from our quiver. Another word is fraud. According to several
    court cases, fraud vitiates all that it comes into contact with.
    Fraud just touching something renders that thing completely
    contaminated and of no further concern to us. How can it be
    otherwise? If it is some other way, once again, what is that
    measuring instrument which we use to mete out the appropriate amount
    of fraud to make sure that we get just the right amount?

    alleged contract can be vacated for fraud, threat, duress, coercion,
    mistake, illegality, immorality, impossibility, insanity or minority
    of age. Another tool in this box is The Seven Elements of
    Jurisdiction. One can easily find them by just the most cursory look
    around a law library or online. The Void for Vagueness Doctrine has
    been used many times to yank whole sets of legal system teeth in one
    fell swoop, as well as proof of a mistaken identity. So you see now,
    the entire legal system is just riddled with holes, some of them big
    enough to sail large ships through three abreast with plenty of room
    left over. Other holes may not look to be so cavernous at first
    glance, but all holes leak something. And once a small leak has
    begun, it can turn into a major spill very quickly. Now some people
    may not like to remove those chains of the legal system from around
    their ankles, because they feel that it is their duty, in some sort
    of a perverted way of thinking, to be ripped off and abused by it and
    its actors. Or maybe it goes against their brainwashing in the
    public fool system or some religious order to seek freedom. And to
    them I say, well, please have a very good time with that then! But
    if others do not want to be made a victim of the legal system, why
    should they be so made? Just to keep the others company in their
    cell next door? We should have better things to do with our precious
    time than that.

    even more tools are The Three Magic Questions. What is the EXACT
    AMOUNT of fraud that ANY man or woman has the right to commit? What
    is the EXACT AMOUNT of fraud that ANY man or woman has an actual
    obligation to endure? What is the BASIC PREMISE that is being
    operated off of, in the instant case? Those three questions right
    there have the lieyers heading for the hills when they are asked.
    They have no real defense against them, so they MUST run away as fast
    as they can and hope that they can outrun them.

    when enough people are educated with this material, the current legal
    system will be starved more and more, eventually becoming so weakened
    it will just die. When enough court cases are dismissed and no
    profits are being created from them, the various policing agencies
    will have to curtail their criminal activities. Like civil asset
    forfeitures. That is the real reason why Prohibition was repealed,
    too many court cases were being lost due to jury nullification and
    the courts were losing money hand over fist. Make no mistake about
    it, courts ARE businesses which must show a profit each fiscal year.
    Every court in America is listed in Dunn & Bradstreet as a
    business!! And, the federal government couldn’t keep shame off its
    face with a law on the books that couldn’t be enforced, so
    Prohibition had to be repealed.

    fine day, we will be able to go back to Common Law courts with real
    juries of our peers; our friends, neighbors and business
    acquaintances, for who else should know us better in order to judge
    us? The judges will be there only to act as referees to keep things
    running smoothly and the jurors will be the ones who judge our guilt
    or innocence based upon the factual evidence presented.

    • Thanks for the info. It all starts by exposing the courts and prosecutors have no personal jurisdiction without our consent. Search for Anna Von Reitz, see also on YouTube CopWatch Hawaii, Marc Stevens, JeHeretic

      • Aye, but here’s the rub! Anna, et al, do NOT like to admit to the correctness of my logical analyses any more than the lieyers, because they all have an AGENDA!! And that agenda is to make profits by selling people something! For the lieyers, they are selling you strategies which may or may not work for you. Anna and others are all trying to sell you something too! But as for me, I GIVE my work away 100% for FREEEEE!!! See the difference there? I am handing out “red pills” to escape The Matrix, whereas all of the others are merely selling you maps on how they think you should navigate through it! WHY should you continue living in The Matrix when you can escape from it?
        The case of Randy Lee Beats the IRS is only one way to open up your escape hatch. Foley Bros v. Filardo is another one. You can find escape hatches all over the legal system, once you know what they all have in common and look like. It is FRAUD!! ANY time fraud just merely touches something, it creates an escape hatch for you right there! Don’t just take MY word for it, look it up and see for yourself sometime! Look up “Fraud vitiates all that it comes into contact with” and you will see that I am 100% correct!
        I have contacted many people who have web sites where they try to make you believe that they are some kind of oracle, a magician of some sort and can solve all of your legal system woes for you, for a fee, but not one of them is interested in what I have to say because it cuts straight across their cash flow streams! ALL of them have chosen fortune over freedom, instead of the other way around, as I have done.
        If you can find even just ONE man or woman who can prove me wrong in any factual or logical way, PUUULLLEEEZE send them my way so that I may stand corrected, as I always prefer to be right over being wrong.
        ALL that I ask is that my works not be altered in any way, shape or form. No charges are made for it since I give it away for free. I am given sole credit for my work since I am its sole Author. Is that too much to ask from you?

  2. Can’t wait to see this concept applied to other legal and law enforcement scams.

  3. Bet the lawyers thought their jobs were safe from AI too! Thank you

  4. I knew my faith in our generation of young adults was not misplaced.
