Supervision of on-street parking
Parking areas in Vienna are supervised by the supervision of on-street parking unit (Parkraumüberwachungsgruppe) of the Vienna provincial police directorate (Landespolizeidirektion Wien). There are different types of parking tickets depending on the kind and seriousness of the offence committed. You will either get a regular parking ticket (Organstrafverfügung) - colloquially called a “Strafzettel” in Austria, a notification of offence (Anzeige), an anonymous order (Anonymverfügung), or a provisional penal order (Strafverfügung). In some cases your vehicle is towed.
