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 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.
