    Was it the NSW Police who issued the fine?

    yes , a highway patrol officer drove past it and must have written it up at the station.

    Hi Brook,

    Can you provide a little more detail about the issue? for instance, are we talking about a shopping centre style carpark or a unit complex etc?

    It is in a privately owned shopping centre carpark.

    In Vic the shopping centre car park owner can write to the police and request that their property be covered by the Vic Road Rules Act. If the police accept, this gives police jurisdiction to issue fines. Not sure if the same thing is possible in NSW.

    There will likely be some sort of Australian standard that applies to such signage.

    Signs be a certain size, displayed in a certain way, etc.

    That will possibly be your defence. Time to find the relevant standards and do some very, very boring reading.
