NSW Parking Fines for Canberra residents?

By hopeful - 24 May 2011 26

Does anyone know how enforcable NSW parking fines are? 

My husband picked up a parking fine in Sydney in January 2011 in a car registered in my name. The fine came in the mail and he said to ignore it but now an enforcement notice has come and I’m worried that if it doesn’t get paid, my licence will be suspended or something equally as drastic will happen.

Any advice/information would be appreciated.

Thanks

They can remove your right to drive in NSW… Not such a problem if you lived in WA, big problem if you live in the ACT.

Grow up, take responsibility for your actions and pay your fines. Yes, they are enforceable

Did he deserve the fine? If so, pay the fine. It’s not that hard. If he didn’t deserve it, challenge it.

The NSW government can apply to have the fine enforcement transferred to the ACT:

Best to pay it, as the amount will just keep increasing until they finally catch up with you.

The days of ignoring driving and parking penalties incurred in other jurisdictions are well and truly over.

“The fine came in the mail and he said to ignore it”

Its a brave man that leaves a party ticket unpaid or unchallenged.

Does you husband like having warrants lodged for his arrest in NSW ?

why did he suggest ignoring it? What makes you two above the laws that we all have to follow?

Make him pay it, it’s called *sshole tax.

Save your money for the divorce lawyer. Have your mother open a separate account you can transfer money into as a “gift” until you need it after aforementioned divorce. Put 30% of your salary into that account until you can pack up and leave without being in financial trouble and can rent an apartment (bond, furniture, 2 month rent up front).

Pack up & leave.

Attach yourself to the next stupid loser you inadvertently come across and are attracted to even though they are a stupid bogan loser.

Repeat.

Yup, can be a bit of a bloodbath here sometimes …..

My advice, pay it, contest it or Stat Dec it to his name so then if he chooses not to pay, the consequences are his :)

Sorry, missed part of the opening. Stat Dec your husband, then tell him ‘not to worry about it’

+1 for this approach. Although you might end up driving your husband ’round after they take his licence.
