I received a parking fine of $103.00 for unknowingly parking in a no stopping area and would like to know if any fellow OZBargainers think it is worth contesting?
It was next to a development area where two other cars (in the photo) were also fined. I did not see the no stopping sign and feel it is poorly displayed
I just happened to park there on a day the council made a visit because people continue to park there everyday.
(EDIT/UPDATE) - Thanks for your input.
My offence on the ticket is Section 167: A driver must not stop on a length of road or in an area to which a no stopping sign applies.
I noticed in the Transport Operations (Road Use Management—Road Rules) Regulation 2009 there appears to be two different types of signs for no stopping. One is for no stopping for a length of road (which they used here) and the other is no stopping for an area.
I know this is just an excuse now, but am I wrong in thinking they have used the wrong sign because aren't I technically off the road instead of along it. Or are the signs interchangeable.
