Pay a parking fine

A parking fine is also know as a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). These are issued when your vehicle breaks parking regulations such as:

  • Parking on double yellow lines
  • Not displaying a valid pay and display ticket
  • Parking alongside a dropped kerb
  • Parking more than 50cm from the kerb.

PCNs are issued under the Traffic Management Act 2004.
