A Parking fine is not fun to get but it still happens. The most common reason is that you didn't pay as you should have for the parking. There are a few basic rules to avoid getting a fine:

  • Pay the Parking ticket
  • Park you car within the lines of the parking space
  • Leave the parking ticket visible at the dash board
  • Never park your car with the front towards the incoming traffic
  • Only park the car where it's a parking space

The average size of a parking fine is from 500 kronor to 1 000 kronor (in 2016). If you park the car in such a way that it is removed you will face much higher parking fine. Please call +46 8 508 284 84 if this happens and find out when and where to get your car back.

Starting from January 1:st 2016 a reminder of the Parking fine will be sent to your address abroad if not paid in time. This is an agreement between Sweden and most countries within EU and is administered by Euro Parking Collection.
