Avoid Parking Fines in Your New Skoda Car

Range of Skoda Vehicle Colours

With more cars on the roads than ever before, the competition for parking spots has heated up. Inevitably we have seen an increase in the level of parking enforcement to deal with this situation. Many drivers are confused with some of the rules surrounding parking and end up paying fines. Let’s take a closer look at some of the more common issues that drivers need to be aware of.

It may be the case that a new Skoda driver has parked up and believes that they have broken no rules. Despite this, a parking fine is waiting on the windscreen when they return to their car. An incredible excuse or some kind of legal action using maps will take a lot of time to sort out, and it is not likely to be successful. The only real way to guarantee that you don’t have to pay a parking fine is to ensure that you don’t get a fine at all. Playing the parking game within the rules will significantly reduce the chances of receiving a fine

Millions of dollars flow to the local councils of this country every year from parking fines. They don’t need any more of your money, and in order to hang on to your cash, you need to understand the parking rules. However, some local councils may have specific rules to regulate certain areas and situations. Always check with your local council to see if there are any exceptions in place where you are planning to park your car.

Listing the specific rules for every council and state in Australia is beyond the scope of this article. Instead, let’s take a look at some of the general state specific parking rules in Western Australia that affect drivers.
When parking on a nature strip or verge get permission from the occupier of the adjacent property unless there are no parking signs.

Don’t place a “for sale” sign in your parked up car window.
Don’t park less than 10 metres from a corner without a traffic light.
Don’t park less than 20 metres from a corner with a traffic light.
Don’t park less than 1 metre away from a fire plug or hydrant.
