The City of Stirling is inviting you to have your say on the Immobilisation and Detention of Vehicles Local Law 2019.

The local law would ban the use of wheel clamps and regulate the detention of vehicles throughout the City of Stirling, including on private property.

The law will apply across the City except in limited circumstances where parking facilities are controlled by access gates and a driver must pay a fee to leave the facility, where a government officer has the power to detain a vehicle or where there is an agreement allowing for the vehicle to be detained, for example where a car mechanic requires payment for repairs before the vehicle can be collected.

Those that break the law can expect a fine of $500 if an infringement is issued or a fine of up to $5,000 if the matter is heard in court.

A full copy of the law is available for download here or to the right in the document library.

The draft local law is open for public comment until 31 January 2020.
