Vehicle regulations

Our parking wardens don’t only monitor parking infringements. To help keep our roads safer for everyone, we also issue infringement notices for obvious breaches of the Land Transport Act.

Bald or damaged tyres

Did you know that bald tyres are one of the leading causes of accidents?

We want to help prevent accidents, so our parking wardens issue infringement notices for tyres that are obviously smooth, have tyre cords showing, or that have no obvious tread.

We don’t check every tyre or car – but if we see something obvious, an infringement notice will be issued.

Bald or damaged tyres with irrefutable photographic evidence will incur a $150 fee.

Overdue WoF and registration

If your vehicle doesn’t have a current warrant of fitness or if its registration has expired, then there’s no proof the vehicle is safe.

We understand people can forget to register their vehicle or book their WoF before the due date, so we’ve made a couple of changes to make that moment of forgetfulness less painful.

Here’s how it works

If it’s not longer than seven days overdue, you’ll receive a warning notice.

If it’s between seven days and three months overdue, you’ll get an infringement notice, but you have 14 days to become compliant. If you let us know, we'll cancel your  infringement notice.

If it’s overdue by more than three months, you’ve had plenty of time to sort things out, so we'll issue an infringement notice. This can’t be reversed on your payment.

Each of these infringements will incur a $200 fee.
