You must pay or appeal your infringement within 28 days of the date of issue. After this, a Final Demand Notice will be sent to you with added costs. This provides you with an extra 28 days to pay the infringement notice.
If payment is not received in the next 28 days, your infringement notice becomes registered at the Fines Enforcement Registry. This carries further costs and may affect licenses held in your name.
If you have received a parking fine, you can view the details including photos of your vehicle, to help you decide on what action to take to resolve your fine.

Appealing a parking fine

Parking Infringement Appeal Form
The MLPR system consists of six advanced Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras. These cameras use cutting-edge artificial intelligence and Global Positioning System (GPS) technology with centimeter-level precision. Their purpose? To automatically monitor illegal parking and ensure the smooth flow of traffic, and minimize the need for intervention from our Parking Officers.
Here's how it works: once an offense is identified, our Parking Officers personally review each infringement or caution before anything is printed. This ensures accuracy and fairness in every case. Once verified, an infringement notice is then mailed to the vehicle owner. It includes all the necessary details about the offense, the corresponding section of the Parking Local Law, and even a photo of the vehicle in question. This streamlined process not only saves time and resources, but also allows our team to focus on other essential tasks.
Our new MLPR system brings multiple benefits to the community. It ensures fair enforcement of parking regulations, promotes parking space turnover, and frees up time for parking officers to address other resident requests. With automated identification of illegal parking, the system enhances efficiency and responsiveness while maximizing parking availability. Embracing this technology paves the way for a more equitable and convenient parking experience for all community members and visitors.
With our new MLPR system, we aim to create a safer and more convenient experience for everyone in our City.
