Parking fines

Parking fines are officially called 'infringement notices'. Infringement notices are issued when a vehicle has 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 21 days may result in further action being taken. This action may include additional costs, enforcement or legal action.

HOW TO PAY MY parking fine

How do I appeal my parking fine?

You can request an internal review for your fine through the parking appeal process. This includes nominating another person as the driver of your vehicle.

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.

Body-worn cameras

Our Compliance and Parking service officers will now be wearing body-worn cameras. The camera is attached to the officer’s uniform and is clearly visible to everyone.

Body-worn cameras are another tool we can use to improve community trust, accountability and transparency.  Footage from the cameras may assist with prosecution cases or when reviewing a community members complaint against an officer.  The body worn cameras will also provide additional safety for our officers.

For further information on body worn cameras, please see our  Standard Operating Procedure BWC.

If you believe one of our officers has inappropriately used a body-worn camera, you can contact the Manager of Compliance & Parking Services on 9205 5555 or email info@yarracity.vic.gov.au.
