We issue fines for things like:

  • illegal parking
  • littering
  • animal infringements
  • not complying with local laws.

We use penalty units to calculate fines. In Queensland the current value of one penalty unit (for 2021 / 2022) is $137.85.

Each type of offence attracts a number of penalty units (e.g. if you park in a disabled parking bay this attracts two penalty units – 4 penalty units x $137.85 = $551.40, rounded down to $551).

The State Treasurer reviews penalty units yearly.
