Parking

Our parking and traffic laws are there to ensure the safe and fair use of  roads for the benefit of everyone. Many people park illegally because it's convenient, without stopping to think that they might be inconveniencing others or putting them in danger.

If you park illegally, you can be fined. If you don't pay the fine, you will have statutory costs added to it. If you continue to refuse to pay, your property can be seized, your vehicle registration or your licence can be suspended or you can go to gaol.
