A Whopping $860K was Issued in Parking Fines in Toowoomba Past Financial Year

Mega dollars were issued in fines by Toowoomba Regional Council in the past financial year - a staggering $860,000 to be exact.

That equates to more than 300 tickets and notices being issued every week.

TRC’s Cr Joe Ramia said the issued amount comes from almost 16,000 infringement notices.

"More than 12,600 fines totalling $687,000 have been paid," he said.

"More than 3,200 fines totalling $177,000 have defaulted to the State Penalties Enforcement Registry.

"Around 20 per cent of infringement notices are defaulting to SPER."

The most common offences were the most obvious ones.

"Unpaid parking and exceeding permitted time limits are the most prevalent offences across the Toowoomba Central Parking Area.”
