What is penalty claim?

Penalty claim

Penalty claim is issued to drivers for lack of compliance with the parking rules and conditions. The penalty claim is meant to motivate clients to use the parking places and territories according to the terms of use.

Penalty claim levels and payment regulations

In case parking terms have been violated by the driver in any way, a penalty claim of 50, 80, 95 PLN (dependent on location) is issued and placed on the car's windshield (attached to the wiper). The parking attendant secures evidence of the penalty claim by writing a report and taking pictures of the vehicle - these measures prove that violation of the general terms have occurred. (NOTE: car user, who received penalty claim, can view penalty's information and photographic documentation through our website).
