Hi all

A friend has received a parking fine (legitimately parked in a no standing zone and doesn't contest that) but the make of the vehicle on her parking fines do not match that of her vehicle. The car registration number does though. It is in the City of Boroondara council district. Just wondering if she has a legal leg to stand on or not?

My understanding is that most jurisdictions have a 'near enough is close enough' rule for infringement tickets. So the answer is, probably not.
