To assist in the free flow of traffic in the Perth CBD, vehicles stopped in Clearways, No Stopping Zones and in designated bus lanes can be towed to a secure compound for the safety of all road users.
Towing in the Perth CBD is an Active Traffic Management initiative managed by Main Roads to keep traffic moving, ensure the safety of other road users and improve the management of congestion on Perth CBD roads.
Whenever we stop where we shouldn’t in the CBD, we make an impact to the flow of traffic behind us. Whether it is stopping in a Clearway, blocking an intersection, parking in a No Stopping zone or blocking a bus lane, all of these actions contribute to CBD congestion and can cause delays for other road users. It creates an obstacle for other vehicles to get around and can lead to unsafe driving situations such as swerving and difficulty merging.
If your vehicle has been towed you must contact the Towing Compound to arrange collection.

To retrieve your vehicle, you will be required to pay the towing cost recovery fee. This fee can vary from $368.50 to upwards of $400 and covers the cost of towing and administration costs. Please note however, that no additional revenue is generated by the towing service.
A City of Perth infringement notice may also be issued to all vehicles towed within the CBD, please visit the City of Perth website for further information.
It is important to note that the City of Perth can still issue fines for vehicles illegally parked in restricted areas and if a fine has been issued, this does not make the vehicle exempt from being towed. When you collect your vehicle from the Clearway Management Compound, you may find your vehicle has also been fined.
