Dispute a fine or expiation

Tickets or fines are officially called expiation notices. Expiation fees are set by the State Government and apply to all councils.

Expiation notices can be sent to you in the mail, handed to you or secured under your vehicle windscreen wiper blade.

Photos can be viewed the next business day. View a photo of your parking offence
