Paying your parking fine

It may take up to 24 hours from the time your fine was issued to be available to pay. You have 28 days from the issue date to pay your parking fine.

Fines are calculated using penalty units based on the severity of the offence. Penalty units for parking offences range from 0.5 penalty units to 5 penalty units.

Note: As at 1 July 2016, the value of a penalty unit is equal to $121.90. The fine amount must be rounded down to the nearest dollar after the calculation. For example, the fine amount for an infringement of 2 penalty units is: 2 x $121.90 = $243.80; the rounded down fine amount is $243.
