The parking fine in districts 1 - 18 and 21 is €50 and elsewhere €40

Do the following

A parking penalty fee must be paid at the latest on the due date. If a penalty fee has been issued or a vehicle has been clamped, you can contact the parking warden to file a claim for a revised decision. As a rule, the claim must be filed within 30 days of the date on which the decision was attached to a vehicle or the vehicle owner was otherwise notified of it.

The claim for rectification must be made in writing within 30 days of the date on which the parking fine has been issued or the demand for payment has been notified.

Claims for rectification are processed within an average of 2 weeks. The decision will only be sent by mail to the postal address you have provided.

The claim for rectification can also be submitted at the Osviitta service point.

If you have questions regarding the rectification claims, you can call during consulting hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 14.00 and 15.00 o'clock. During any other time, you can leave your contact information on the answering machine so that we can contact you later.

The payment period for the parking fine is 30 days. The claim for rectification does not extend the payment period, but the payment is refunded if the claim for rectification is accepted.

Background information

The task of parking enforcement is to enforce compliance with the rules and regulations concerning stopping and parking cars and stationary idling. Parking in public areas is monitored by municipal parking inspectors and the police. A parking inspector may impose a parking penalty fee for a violation of these prohibitions and restrictions. The size of the fee varies by municipality. If you think you have been fined on false grounds, you can file a claim for a revised decision.

Parking enforcement may clamp your car if it has been wrongly parked for at least two days or your car has accumulated five unpaid parking penalty fees.

A municipal parking warden or inspector must have insignia and a uniform that indicate his or her task, as well as a badge of office that can be displayed if necessary. Private parking facilities with their own operating principles and rules also operate in large cities
