Hi guys,
new to the forum, received a parking ticket for parking in a no-parking zone from Redlands City Council (didn't see the signage). Trying to clarify how the amount of the fine is calculated? From trying to do some research, it appears that it is a fine under s168(1) of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management—Road Rules) Regulation 2009. From more research the Brisbane City council website claims that it is a 1 penalty unit fine of $126, whilst the fine I received from Redlands City council is $88 about 0.7 of a penalty unit. The Infringement notice states "State Penalties Enforcement Act 1999, however under p305 of this regulations for this act it lists the fine as 2/5 of a penalty unit ($50). Any idea how councils work out the cost of parking fines, and why they don't appear to coincide with the State Penalties Enforcement Regulations?
Thanks for any ideas.

Sorry to answer my own post. Had an idea. Apparently the place I parked just happens to be under a local law not mentioned on the infringement notice. Wish council could infact make an infringement notice complying with the legislation and which is clear to understand.
