Infringement Request for Withdrawal

Infringements are only withdrawn in extenuating circumstances and Sunshine Coast Council reserves the right to refuse to withdraw an infringement notice.

Infringements will not be withdrawn for the following reasons:

  • Financial hardship
  • Being unaware of the law or not seeing the sign
  • Disagreeing with the law.¬† You may feel the offence for which the infringement notice has been issued is trivial or did not cause hazard
  • Running out of petrol
  • Not having adequate coins for the meter
  • Stopped briefly in restricted zone¬†

Council may consider the withdrawal of an infringement notice for vehicle related offences if you can demonstrate any of the following occurred at the time of the offence:

  • Your vehicle broke down and you were unable to move it to a legal position
  • You were involved in a medical emergency
  • You were issued the infringement notice in error
  • You were issued an infringement notice as the registered owner of the vehicle that, at the time of the offence, the vehicle had been sold or stolen, or was under the (permitted) control of another person (Statutory Declaration required)
  • Regulatory signage was removed or damaged

If you have previously submitted a request for withdrawal for this infringement, council advises that the options available to you are as follows:

1. Lodge a known user statutory declaration (vehicle related offences only)
2. Pay the fine in full by the due date
3. Elect to have the matter determined by a Magistrates Court (in writing to council by the due date)
4. Apply to pay by instalments (only penalties of more than $200)
