Parking fines in Sweden are controlled by two different laws, for if the fine was issued on private land or streets.
If the yellow parking fine says “Parkeringsanmärkning” – pay first and then appeal
If you’ve received a “parkeringsanmärkning” that you consider inaccurate, you can appeal it but you have to pay for it either way. If your appeal is approved, you will get the fine back. You have 8 days to pay the fine, from the date it was issued. If you don’t pay, you will get reminders and a higher fee, then the issue will be handed over to the bailiff.
You have 6 months to appeal a “parkeringsanmärkning”, from the date it has been paid or from the date the bailiff started a process.
For any questions regarding the payment, contact The Swedish Transport Authority.
Visit The Swedish Transport Authority’s website for more information.
If the “parkeringsanmärkning” contains obvious errors, such as for example vehicle manufacturer, you can apply for correction instead. This must be done within a couple days from receiving the fine. You apply for correction by taking the fine with you to the local police station where the fine was issued. If your application for correction was not approved, you can continue by filing an appeal.
A “parkeringsanmärkning” that you consider inaccurate is appealed to The Dalecarlia Police Authority. Visit The Dalecarlia Police Authority’s website for more information on how to file an appeal.
If the yellow parking fine says “Kontrollavgift” – appeal first and pay after
If you’ve received a “kontrollavgift” that you consider inaccurate, this needs to be appealed right away. If you pay the fine, the issue is considered closed and can lead to you having to take the matter to court if you consider the “kontrollavgift” inaccurate.
Appeal a “kontrollavgift” with Aimo Park. The appeal must be written and can be done via a form on their website.
