Split from [Vic] Parking Infringment It would be worth looking into. Fines issued with out a conviction by a court are not valid. This doesn't mean you can ignore them because they are a commercial claim and certain processes the council could employ may give them access to a security such as some property owned by the individual they are claiming from. Courts are about 99% commercial matters now including many things claimed as crimes which are not. Good news is the processes these people use work both ways, also some Federal laws superceed/override state laws due to an inconsistency and where this occurs the state law is null. Take a look at aussie speeding fines, no affiliation, they have a face book, which is where most of the discussion on speeding and parking infringements happens. I don't face place so can't see what they are saying. Every know and then I hear some of the discussion read out on a radio show. Acts: Imperial Acts Application Act (Vic) - applies throughout Australia - if you want it to. Removed from most other states as a statute. Constituion of Australia 1901 - Full faith and credit must be given to the laws of all states. Don't remember the exact section. 50 perhaps? Again check the mob I mentioned above. know your rights group is another good one with some stuff on fines. Best of Luck.
