Public Parking Fine Appeal Letter

This letter may be used to appeal a parking fine which has been imposed by a local authority such as a city or municipal council.

Each parking ticket authority in Australia has its own process that people must follow in order to appeal parking fines. Some authorities have online systems that must be used and do not accept appeals of parking fines by letter. For those authorities, this letter will not be needed.

However, many other authorities do accept appeals of parking fines by letter. Some also have application forms which can be downloaded, filled out and submitted. This letter will be useful in both of these cases. Even if an application form is being downloaded and filled out, it is a good idea to use this letter as a cover letter.

Therefore, it is a good idea to check on the procedure for the relevant authority before going ahead with preparing this letter. For authorities that accept written applications (with or without an application form), this document provides a quick and easy way to present your argument in a professional and compelling manner.

This letter can be adapted to list numerous grounds of appeal. Supporting evidence may also be attached to the letter. Some typical grounds of appeal that may be provided include:

    • the driver of the vehicle had a medical emergency that prevented them from moving the vehicle.
    • the vehicle was broken down and could not be moved.
    • the vehicle was stolen.
    • the driver of the vehicle was detained by police.
    • the driver of the vehicle did not commit the offence.
    • the infringement notice was issued to the wrong person or vehicle.

 

How to use this document

If attachments are being used in connection with this letter (such as an application form, photographs or other evidence), make sure they are attached with the letter.

Keep a copy of the letter and the attachments for your records.

Once the letter has been completed and the attachments are attached, simply deliver it to the authority that issued the parking ticket, and wait to hear back from them.

 

Applicable Law

Each state and territory has its own legislation in relation to vehicles traffic management.

In addition, local government acts in each state and territory address the procedures and powers of local and city councils.
