We issue fines for things like:
We use penalty units to calculate fines. In Queensland the current value of one penalty unit (for 2022/2023) is $143.75.
Each type of offence attracts a number of penalty units (e.g. if you park an unregistered vehicle on a road this attracts five penalty units – 5 penalty x $143.75 = $718.75, rounded down to $718.00).
The State Treasurer reviews penalty units yearly.
