Fines

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 2020 / 2021) is $133.45.

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 $133.45 = $533.80, rounded down to $533).

The State Treasurer reviews penalty units yearly.
