Greetings fellow OzBargainers,
Happened in Sydney,NSW.
I wish y'all have a great week ahead of you. Mine did not start pretty well, woke up to drive my van and there were two parking notices on top of it.
The reason is "Rule 170 (3) Stop within 10 m of intersection (no traffic lights):$349 and 2 demerit points".
Because I didn't check my van for a few days, that sums up to 4 demerit points and $700 which is awful for me. My business is not going well due to the covid situation either. Now I woke up today with hefty fines.
I didn't know such a rule existed, and there was no parking restriction on the road.
I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but please somebody tell me if there is a way out from this situation.
Should I dispute and take it to the court or just suck it up and pay the fines?
Another note is that I moved to where I am approximately 2 months ago, and people have been parking that spot since then, does this help me get away with a discount or withdrawal of the fine?
Any suggestion is appreciated….
OP Edit: Decided to appeal on the second fine due to continuous offence.
