If you get a speeding, parking or other traffic fine or infringement notice while borrowing a car (including where the car gets a parking fine after you leave it), you'll be responsible for paying the fine plus a $40 admin fee, and taking any associated demerit points.
If you're issued a fine during your trip
If you're issued a fine during your trip, pay it straight away and email a photo of the fine to firstname.lastname@example.org with proof of payment.
This will prevent the owner from receiving a copy of the fine from the authorities, and you’ll avoid having to pay an additional fee under the Fee Schedule for transferring the fine to your name.
If the owner is sent a fine after your trip
If an owner receives a fine after your trip, we'll provide them with the details they need to reassign the fine to you. This includes your name, address, date of birth, driver's licence number, and state or country of issue. The owner will then inform the issuing authority that you're responsible for the fine, and the authority will reissue the fine directly to you.
We'll also charge you a $40 admin fee.
If you think you have been assigned a fine incorrectly
You can contest the fine with the relevant authority once the fine is in your name.
If you were sharing the driving with another member and the fine was incurred while they were driving, you'll be able to reassign the fine to them once the fine is in your name. Just follow the instructions on the fine notice you'll receive in the mail.
Remember: if the car gets a parking fine in the place you left it, you're responsible – no matter how long it's been since your trip ended.
