Objection

If you disagree with an additional parking tax assessment, you can contest it. You can do this using the contact form on this website.

When is contesting a parking fine fruitless?

GGN invoned will reject your appeal against the additional parking tax assessment if:

  • The parking meter was defect.
  • If you have a disabled parking card but the license plate of the car you were using was not registered with the municipality while you were parked in a ‘normal’ parking space.
  • You did not know that you needed to pay. Signs indicate the paid parking areas.
  • You were registered in the wrong zone and have correspondingly paid not enough parking taxes and/or have exceeded the maximum parking duration.
