Review of fines in NSW
What's this about?
In June 2018, the NSW Government announced the first review of parking and other fines in decades. As part of this, 10 of the most common parking fines, when issued by NSW Government authorities, have been reduced by 25 per cent.
From 1 January 2019, a further 42 state issued parking fines have also been reduced by 25 per cent.
Councils and universities across the state have also been provided the flexibility to lower common parking fines from 28 February 2019.
Motorists will be given a 10-minute grace period from 31 January 2019. The grace period will apply if a motorist has paid for at least one hour of parking and a ticket or coupon has been issued.
To avoid impacts on safety and road congestion, the grace period will not apply to certain areas such as bus lanes, clearways and transit lanes.
NSW Treasury welcomes continued feedback from the community on the review of parking and other fines in NSW.
