Why does the City of Perth issue parking infringements?
Parking spaces in the City of Perth are limited. The City has the responsibility of ensuring all visitors and residents have equal access to parking. To do this, parking areas both on the street and in car parks have been designed to provide for people's varying needs. This includes parking bays for:
- Short term parking (for example, to drop off a document or pick someone up).
- Long term use (people who work in the City all day or who want to shop for an extended period).
- Use by disabled people (those with valid ACROD permits).
- Use by motorcyclists, bus drivers and taxis.
- Use by commercial and delivery vehicles supplying local businesses.
Signs have been erected to advise motorists of the intended use of parking spaces and any restrictions that apply. It is up to drivers to read the signs and comply with their requirements when parking in the city.
Drivers who park incorrectly or illegally make it difficult for others may receive an infringement, a caution or the matter may be taken directly to the Magistrates Court. Ideally, the City would not like to see anyone park contrary to these restrictions and not have to issue infringements at all.
What can I do to avoid receiving a parking infringement?
As stated, the needs of all drivers wishing to park in the city have been considered. Think about your needs and find a suitable parking space to meet them. You should be able to avoid a parking infringement if you:
- Park your vehicle in an appropriate place. Why not plan ahead to save some time. The City of Perth website can assist or telephone 1300 889 613.
- Make sure you take the time to read the parking signs.
- Make sure there is enough time for you to do what you need to do and return to your vehicle before your parking expires.
- Ensure you have parked your vehicle within the lines or area permitted.
- Ensure your valid parking ticket is clearly displayed before leaving your vehicle.
- Ensure your valid parking permit is clearly displayed before leaving your vehicle.
If you are unsure whether you are allowed to park in an area or not then don’t. Find somewhere that you know is appropriate for your needs.
Taking an infringement matter to court
The City of Perth requests that customers appeal an infringement directly to the City, prior to taking Court action.
