Infringements

Infringement notices are issued under state legislation or the Melton City Council General Local Law. An infringement notice may be handed to you, placed on your windscreen or sent to you in the mail.

Failure to pay a fine or to take any other action before the due date may result in further enforcement action and further costs being added.
