Parking Expiation Notice

Please be aware of the zones you are permitted to park. Any vehicle parked in the incorrect zone or without a valid Permit or registered payment will be issued with an Expiation Notice under the By-Laws of the University of South Australia enacted under the University of South Australia Act 1990 and pursuant to the Expiation of Offences Act 1996.

Expiation notices are issued by CarePark. Expiation Notices are required to be paid within 28 days. Failure to pay within this period, a reminder notice will be issued which will incur a late payment fee. Unpaid Expiation notices will be escalated to the Fines Enforcement and Recovery Unit.

An Expiation Notice will not be waivered with the exception for trifling (for the meaning of trifling see section 4 (2) Expiration of Offences Act 1996)
