Parking fines are issued when drivers fail to pay for their parking, overstay the time limit or park in an unsafe way, like on yellow lines.
Tickets can also be issued for out-of-date or no warrant of fitness and registration.
Please read the summary of rights on the back of the ticket. If you wish to dispute the ticket, you will need to write to council or fill out our online form (below) within the timeframe given in the summary of rights. Please include the infringement number noted on the ticket.
