PR queen Roxy Jacenko is left outraged after copping a ‘ridiculous’ $272 fine for washing her car

Roxy Jacenko was left furious on Friday after she was issued a fine for washing her car outside her home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia at the time, the 41-year-old PR queen labelled the $272 fine ‘totally ridiculous’.

‘Not only am I parked over my own garage to use the hose that is situated within the garage, they have the audacity to book me whilst the car is being washed,’ she said.

Roxy added that the car was parked ‘in a dead-end street’ and was ‘not obstructing anyone or any access’.

‘Not only is Paddington in dire straits with “For Lease” signs on every second store, they want to fine people who are trying to revive and bring people to the area,’ she said.

Roxy shared a series of photos from the security cameras installed outside her house on Instagram on Friday.

In the photos, Roxy’s black SUV is parked out on the street, with soap suds running down into the storm water drain.

What appeared to be a hose sat on the ground, running underneath her car, and a man in the foreground is seen taking a photo of something on his phone.

A second photo showed a man appearing to wash her car out on the street, slightly stooped over with a hose in one hand.

‘Can’t even wash one’s bloomin car in this suburb,’ Roxy captioned the post. 

‘Fined whilst doing so, but don’t worry we carried on and finished it – may as well we paid $272 (the fine) for the privilege’. 

According to Sydney Water, you can’t ‘leave taps and hoses running unattended’, and it’s advised people wash their car ‘using a bucket of water and a sponge’.

Many fans sympathised with Roxy, calling the fine an outrage, with one person commenting: ‘Where else do they propose you do it?’

‘GO AND FINE THE REAL CRIMINALS,’ commented another, while someone else added, ‘Super annoying’.

Wrote one person: ‘So you can’t even park in front of your home & wash your car!!! What a joke’.

According to a report by The Sydney Morning Herald in April, fines collected by the New South Wales government have skyrocketed by almost 30 per cent since 2019.

Revenue raised from fines now totals a record $81million, with this number continuing to rise. 

Washing her car outside her house seems to be a regular occurrence for Roxy, with the publicist sharing a photo of it covered in suds back in May, too.

It’s not the first time Roxy’s vehicle has landed her in trouble.

Earlier this month, she shared a photo of her car on the back of a tow truck as it was being driven away.

‘The trouble maker of Paddington being officially moved to another spot,’ she captioned the post.
