Parking fines are necessary to regulate and control the use of parking spaces.
Fines have become necessary to ensure the safety of road users and to maximise access to valuable kerbside parking spaces.
What to do if you receive an infringement notice
If you receive a parking fine (an 'penalty notice') you have 21 days to pay it, lodge an appeal or elect to go to court.
