    I received an expiation notice from the council while on private property. Can they do this? Also they fined me for exceeding the time limit parking fines where no limit was shown. Then they sent a reminder notice with a reminder fee that exceeds the expiation fee. i.e. $50 fine plus $60 reminder fee.

    Is this all legal?

    Where exactly was the vehicle parked? A picture may be helpful.

    FYI some large commercial shopping centres do deals with local councils and give the council rights to enforce parking limits. No signs = no fines. Though I suspect signs will be around somewhere.

    Tea Tree Plaza and other parks had 90 min painted in the park but there was nothing in the park I parked in. That's why I parked there.
