Dispute Expiation

The parking expiations processing team aim to respond to your dispute within 10 working days, however delays can occur. 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.

If you have not received a response within 30 days of submitting your dispute please contact the Customer Service Centre on 8203 7203.

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 expiation. If you believe there is a good reason for you not to pay the expiation, you can:

  • Submit an objection online by opening the Parking Expiation Dispute Lodgement.
  • Call our Customer Centre on 8203 7211 to explain your objection. You will need to have your expiation number or vehicle registration.
  • If you were not the driver at the time the expiation 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 Expiation Number and the vehicle registration.
  • Have your case heard by the Magistrate's Court. You can choose to have your matter dealt with in the Magistrate’s Court by completing the Election to be Prosecuted form on the rear of the original Expiation Notice. Return the completed form to GPO Box 1732, Adelaide SA 5001.
