If you do not pay your parking fee on time you will be sent a reminder notice. There is a standard late fee of $16.50, although this may be higher if you are registered in another state or territory.

If you have not settled your infringement within 56 days, the matter will be referred to SPER (State Penalties Enforcement Register) with additional costs.
