Fined after 7PM, for 1100 SEK, although parking sign says parking avgift/fee only upto 7PM.
Two question as per attached picture:
- I agree for my mistake to miss the Bus parking sign, does it make sense fine after 7PM?
- Does 1100 SEK is as per some rule or its parking inspector discretion ?

Very unfortunate, but you will not be able to avoid the fine. So the best thing is to pay it and put it down to experience.

You parked in a bus/coach only parking area, which is what you got the fine for - Trafikörordning 3, kap 54, as it refers to on the ticket:

"På en parkeringsplats där endast ett visst fordonsslag eller en viss trafikantgrupp får parkera får andra fordon inte parkeras eller stannas annat än för på- eller avstigning."

1100kr is the correct fee: https://www.stockholm.se/TrafikStadsplaneri...g/Felparkering/

(the avgift between 7-19 applies to the bus driver needing to pay, so is irrelevant in your case).

As Essingeviken says, put it down to experience.

25 July was a Thursday and there is no parking 0-6 meters on a Thursday!

The 0-6 refers to the hours of the day you are not allowed to park, not meters!
