Seeking a bit of advice on local council parking fines. My question is "what can they do if I refuse to pay them?" A couple of months back my wife rushed down to Monash hospital to be with our daughter while she had gave birth to her first child. She took the 4WD as I was "up country" in the company car. When she got to Monash Hospital, my wife was afraid the fourbie with roofracks, wouldn't fit under the roofline of the carpark so she parked in a 2hr spot in the street, needless to say she copped a $60 parking ticket. She was aware she would probably get a ticket and accepted she would have to pay it. She went back next day (still in the fourbie) and parked just around the corner from where she parked the previous day, she went up to the ward and back to the car in under 2hrs only to find another $60 parking ticket (turns out around the corner is only 1hr parking) I got both fines, wrote to Monash Council and explained my problem and asked if they would accept payment for one ticket as the carpark they built couldn't fit our car in. I got a letter back saying, no you have to pay both and BTW here's another $21.50 per ticket for late payment. So her two parking fines are now worth a total $163. I will admit I was prepared to pay the $120 for both tickets if my plea didn't work, but I am not paying the bloody extra $43 fine. And the more I think about the more I reckon stuff em and not pay any, so back to my original question, "what can they do if I refuse to pay them?" sorry if it's long winded and PLEASE don't come back and tell me it's serves me right for owning a 4WD.
