The yellow ticket is a parking charge notice issued by LKP on behalf of Lund municipality that own the land of the car park in question. Parking charge notices are issued in public street areas, such as parking on streets and squares. The parking charge notice is considered a violation of the law, for example if you’ve parked in an unauthorised area or without a valid parking permit. The fee is 400, 600 or 800 SEK, depending on the gravity of the violation. The fee is determined by the municipal council.
See the back of the yellow ticket for information about payment.

What did I do wrong?
To find out on which grounds you have been issued the parking charge notice, please see the section “Överträdelse” (“Violation”) on your ticket.
How do I appeal?
The task of handling appeal processes regarding parking charge notices on public streets has been assigned to the police, by the government. If you wish to appeal, contact the police office in the district where your parking charge notice was issued. You can also call 11414 and ask them to connect you to your local police station.
In order for the appeal to be processed, it must be received within six months after the fee has been paid or the Enforcement Authority has taken measures for exaction.
Regulations on payment are stated in the law (1976:206) and the ordinance regarding parking charge notices (1976:1128).
Do I have to pay the fee even if I choose to appeal?
You should pay the parking charge notice to Transportstyrelsen (Swedish Transport Agency) within the specified time. If not, you will be charged a higher fee and after some time the case will be handed over to the Enforcement Authority for exaction. This applies whether you’ve appealed or not.
See the back of the yellow ticket for more information regarding payment.
