A parking infringement notice (a parking ticket) can be issued by a Police officer, an authorised Council officer, an authorised officer from other public authorities (e.g. VicRoads) or an authorised Council contractor. All authorised Council Contractors have a photo identity card, which must be shown if requested.
A parking ticket can be handed to you, left on your car's windscreen or posted to you.
You have 21 days to pay the fine.
Payments can be made by contacting any Council Service Centre.
Full details are on the Infringement Notice.
The registered owner of the vehicle is responsible for the fine.
If you weren't driving the vehicle, give the name and address of the driver to the authority who issued the ticket.
Additional costs apply if you don’t pay on time and may lead to Court action.
For more information visit the State Government’s Fines website.
If you believe that there is a good reason for you not to pay the fine, you can:
Council does not make the road rules. It only enforces them on behalf of the State Government.
