Channel 7 News Report- Parking Fines Jump

In case anyone else missed it!!

The investigation shows that last financial year the Sunshine Coast council had a whopping increase of $700000 in extra revenue from parking fines and 9000 more tickets issued than the previous year!!!

The video also details the top 10 roads that people are being fined on!!

1- SIPPY DOWNS DRIVE you are the winner by far!!
Almost 5000 tickets issued with a revenue of $200000 raised 
we also have..
2- Oranto Ave, Bulcock Street & Minchinto Street, Caloundra
3- Eccles Road, Birtinya
4- Brisbane Road and Parkland Parade, Mooloolahba
5- Hosptial and Ann Street, Nambour

People are being fined more in April and May (holiday season?)

And most interestingly 2000 tickets WERE REVOKED upon application last year!!
Some were due to medical or compassionate reasons, BUT the bulk were cancelled due to parking inspector error (or as I sometimes call it ‘a worker trying desperately to achieve unreasonable KPIs and keep their job’)
