Parking and parking control
In Jyväskylä, compliance with parking rules and regulations is controlled jointly by the police and the municipal parking control unit.
A parking fine in Jyväskylä city area amounts to EUR 60 and outside the city area it amounts to EUR 40. If the parking fine has not been paid by the deadline (within 30 days), extra charge of 14 euros will be added to the parking fine.
Objections concerning parking fines
Persons dissatisfied with the fine may present a written objection to the traffic warden. The objection must be presented within 30 days the parking error has occured. If the objection is presented after the deadline, it may be ignored. Instructions for making the objection are found on the reverse side of the payment slip.
The objection must include the name and address of the complainer and the relevant case number. The case number is located on the upper right corner of the payment slip.
The objection will not extend the term of payment. If the objection is accepted, the paid sum is returned to the payer.
A review of the decision given by the traffic warden can be sought by appealing to the Hämeenlinna Supreme Administrative Court within 30 days after being notified of the decision, in accordance with what has been provided in the Administrative Judicial Procedure Act (586/1996).
In addition to what is separately provided in the decrees concerning the letter of complaint, a certificate of the payment of the fine within the deadline must be attached to the letter: otherwise, the complaint will be ignored. However, the case can still be investigated as a material appeal.
