Frequently asked questions

How long do I have to pay my parking fine?

You have 28 days from the date your parking infringement ticket was issued to pay the fine.

What happens if I do not pay my parking infringement fine?

If you do not pay for your parking infringement fine within 28 days from the date the ticket was issued, a legal reminder notice will be sent out to you.

If the fine is not paid within a further 28 days after the reminder notice date, it will be lodged with ​debt-collection agency Baycorp.

Fine lodged with Baycorp - important things to note: 

  • Hamilton City Council cannot accept payment once the fine is lodged with Baycorp.
  • Hamilton City Council cannot review the fine once it is lodged with Baycorp.
  • You will need to make payment to Baycorp.
  • Baycorp do not add a fee to the fine.
  • Baycorp will assess if a part-payment arrangement is possible.
  • For more information about how to pay, visit the Baycorp website.

If the infringement remains unpaid, the fine will then be passed over to the Ministry of Justice for collection with additional administration costs added to your fine.
