Faulty Parking Meters or Ticket Machines

If the parking meter or ticket machine is faulty and you cannot pay for your parking, you are still only entitled to park for the time limit for the area.

If a patrolling officer has noted the time you parked, they can give you an infringement for overstaying the time limit even if the meter is faulty.

If the meter is faulty and won’t accept your money, please note down the number on the meter and report the fault to the Council Offices on 03 5832 9700 at once.
