Traffic control fines are huge sources of income for state governments. In the year 2012/13, for example, the Adelaide City Council collected A$6 million in traffic-related fines alone. An expiation fine is issued when a motor vehicle excceds the specified time limit which has been allocated for a parking space.
This FACT indicates the cost of a standard expiation parking fine in each Australian city. The city with the highest parking fine is Canberra at $114. The city with the lowest fine is Hobart at $39.
