Dispute an Expiation
Want to dispute your expiation but not sure if you have a valid reason? Select the Rule printed on your ticket and you will find information on that Rule and explanations on how you could dispute.
The parking expiations processing team aim to respond within 10 working days. However, we are experiencing some delay with responses at present. Please be assured you will receive a reply in due course. The expiation will be held and no further action taken until the response is sent to you.
For special meaning of trifling, see section 4(2) Expiation of Offences Act 1996.
How To Proceed With Your Dispute
Don’t delay payment just because you can’t decide what to do. Failure to pay or take any other action within 28 days will result in costs being added to the fine. If you believe there is a good reason for you not to pay the fine, you can:
- You can submit an objection online by opening the Parking Expiation Dispute Lodgement.
- Call our Customer Centre on 8203 7203 to explain your objection. You will need to have your infringement number or vehicle registration.
- If you were not the driver at the time the Infringement was incurred, you can complete and forward a Statutory Declaration with the full name and address of the person who was driving.
- Write to our Parking Expiations Processing Team, GPO Box 1732, Adelaide SA 5001, explaining your objections. Please include your contact details, the Infringement Number and the vehicle registration.
- Have your case heard by a court. You can choose to have your matter dealt with in the Magistrate’s Court by notifying the Parking Administration Section in writing, GPO Box 1732, Adelaide SA 5001.
The offence rule information is on your original Expiation Notice.
Note: If you have multiple Notices, please select the Rule relating to each offence and address separately.
