Facilities Management | Infringement Waiver Request Form

Schedule 1 of the Queensland University of Technology Act 1998 (Qld) provides authority for the University to create a Regulated Traffic Area on QUT property; failing to comply with our traffic and parking regulations is an offence against the Act for which penalties of up to 10 Penalty Units may be applied. Where we allege a failure to comply with our traffic and parking regulations, a Penalty Infringement Notice may be issued, as prescribed by the State Penalties Enforcement Act 1999 (Qld) and the supporting regulations.

If you have received a Penalty Infringement Notice, you may request the penalty to be waived by completing this form. The waiver review process is subject to stringent audit controls to ensure that each request is treated factually and fairly.

An infringement will normally only be waived if:

  • the infringement was incorrectly issued;
  • there was a medical emergency; or
  • there are other extenuating circumstances.

Each request is measured against objective criteria, documented in the waiver policy. As our Infringement and Waiver Policy (PDF File, 45 KB), permits the granting of waivers only in particular circumstances and under strict conditions, we encourage all potential appellants to read the policy before submitting a request.
