Appealing an Infringement

To dispute a parking infringement notice

If you were not driving at the time of the offence complete the statutory declaration on the ticket, stating the name and address of the driver or if you had by the time of the offence transferred ownership of the vehicle, give full details of the owner and post to: PO Box 21 Goolwa SA 5214.

Dispute the offence informally by writing to Council using the Submission for Review of Expiation Notice Form. Upon receipt of your appeal, the expiation notice will be put 'on hold' pending a review. You will be advised of the outcome by Council in writing once a decision has been made by the reviewing officer. Please be aware that council cannot consider an appeal once the matter has been transferred to the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Officer, which occurs once the due date on the reminder notice has expired. Any enquiries after this stage will need to be referred to the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Officer by phoning 1800 659 538.

Dispute the allegation that you committed the offence and elect to be prosecuted. If you elect to be prosecuted for the offence, you may get a summons. The summons will set out when and where to attend Court. Complete the appropriate section on the infringement notice and post or deliver it to Alexandrina Council.

If you think the offence(s) was trifling apply to Alexandrina Council for a review of the infringement notice (for meaning of trifling - see Section 4(2) Expiation of Offences Act 1996).
