Treasurer taking ‘common sense approach’ to parking fines

Article image for Treasurer taking ‘common sense approach’ to parking fines

Parking fines in New South Wales are about to be 25% cheaper, with the announcement to be made in this month’s state budget.

From July 1, minimum fines of $110 will be slashed to $80 for the 10 most common parking fines in areas policed by the state government.

These include fines for drivers who park longer than permitted and people who don’t have a current ticket displayed.

However, the state government only issues 10% of fines which means councils will be able to make their own rules.

State Treasurer Dominic Perrottet joins Ben Fordham.

“Importantly, I am setting maximums for the council…they now have the flexibility to charge less.”

Mr Perrottet says they are adopting a “common sense approach” given¬†Sydney has some of the highest parking fines in the world.

“This is the start of the good news…we’re delivering a strong budget.”
