Parking and parking control

Parking tickets are issued for violating the provisions and regulations regarding stopping vehicles and parking as well as idling. Control may also be extended to private properties at the request of the owner.

In Mikkeli, the parking fine is 45 euros. It must be paid within 30 days from the issue of the fine, or the fine is increased by 14 euros. The registered owner or holder of the vehicle is also responsible for the fine, in addition to the driver. If the vehicle has been incorrectly parked for at least two days or the vehicle has accumulated five fines which have not been paid, the vehicle may be transferred to a storage or locked with a car wheel lock.

Parking fees for parking places subject to a fee can be paid with coins in the ticket machine or with a mobile application. Monthly cards or six-month cards are also available for parking subject to fees.
