Parking control

Please notify the Urban Environment Division's customer service about a vehicle that is parked illegally on a street, market square or green area.

If you park illegally in Helsinki, you may be fined €60-80. The parking fine must be paid within 30 days. The fine is enforceable without a separate decision.

Please contact the Urban Environment Division's customer service, if you have a question about parking.

Contest a parking fine

If you think that the parking fine you have received is unfounded, you can contest it by submitting a claim for rectification within 30 days. You do not have to pay the parking fine while your claim is being processed.

Processing time

It will take us roughly 1-4 months to process your claim.

Additional information

You can submit your claim for rectification with an online form. If this is not possible, you can also deliver it to the Urban Environment Division's customer service by post, email or in person.

The claim for rectification must made in writing, and it must include
- your name and address
- the license plate number of the vehicle in question
- the number on the parking fine, and
- your bank account number.

Attach any documents you wish to submit to the claim before you send it.

After processing your claim, we will destroy any attachments you have sent that concern your state of health or financial situation, for example.
