The Queensland Parliament recently passed legislation for amendments to the State Penalties Enforcement Regulation 2014. These amendments have resulted in an increase in the penalty for drivers who illegally use disability parking spaces.

The State Government believe increasing the infringement notice from two penalty units ($266) to four penalty units ($533) will be a strong deterrent and help ensure disability parking bays are available for those who genuinely need them.

As a result of this legislative amendment, Council is now proposing to amend Schedule 1 of Local Law No. 7 (Parking) 2003. The amendment is to increase the penalty for this offence from two penalty units to four penalty units. This will ensure there is consistency with the penalty provided by the State.
