Parking fines

Parking fines are officially called 'infringement notices'. 

Why did I get a parking fine? 

You would have received a parking fine (officially called an 'infringement notice') if your vehicle illegally overstayed a parking restriction or did not follow the parking restriction signs.  

A parking ticket can be handed to you, left on your car's windscreen or be sent to you in the mail.

How do I pay my parking fine? 

You have 21 days to pay your fine. The parking fine will outline the various ways to make the payment, including assistance if you have special circumstances and payment plan options. 

Failure to pay an infringement notice or to contact Yarra City Council within 28 days may result in further action being taken. This action may include additional costs, enforcement or legal action.

I think I should not have received a fine. What can I do?

You can request an internal review for your fine through the parking appeal process

Why do you have parking regulations?

Parking regulations are designed to maintain safety and ensure shared access to parking spaces in areas where there is high demand. All licensed motor vehicle drivers are expected to know the road rules that apply on Victorian roads and in carparks.

Parking fines or infringements are issued to owners of vehicles that do not adhere to parking restrictions.
