Possibly Invalid Parking Fine Due to Incorrrect Make/Body
Last edited 15/06/2018 - 09:04 by 1 other user
My younger sister recently parked near a Sydney train station on the side of the road, without fully reading the sign. So after 3pm the street turns from 2P to No Stopping. So of course on her return to her car that evening, she was slapped with a $257 fine for "83595 - Disobey no stopping sign".
She drives a Red Mazda 3 Hatch; however the ticket incorrectly records the offender car details as a (Make:) Toyota (Body Type:) Sedan; whilst the colour and the licence plate rego is correct. I've tried to search online and in forums to see if this would be an invalid ticket due to the wrong recorded details but can't seem to find much, wrong rego plate would be invalid and it seems in other states/countries any incorrect detail on the ticket would invalidate the ticket but can't find any details from NSW. Has anyone had any experience with a similar situation?
Note: On the NSW SDRO website, I couldn't see any photos attached onto the fine yet (although I'm 99% certain they would also have photographs of the offence as they all seem to take photos anyway)
