August 4th, 2022Litter fine for Tylden man
A Tylden man who dropped a parking receipt after using it to open a boom gate, wound up dropping $1100 in a fine and costs, after being reported for littering.
Environment Protection Authority Victoria fined the man for littering after he was spotted dropping the receipt out of his car window in Malcolm Street, South Yarra, and making no attempt to pick it up. Another driver reported the littering offence and offered to provide evidence in court if necessary. The accused man challenged the EPA fine in the Melbourne Magistrates Court, but the court found the charge proven and fined him $300 with $800 in costs.
