Hundreds of people have been slapped with fines for parking in disabled spots across the Gold Coast, without a permit.

News Corp has revealed the most motorists were caught doing the wrong thing in Biggera Waters, Burleigh Heads, Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach.

According to Gold Coast City Council data from the past financial year, 631 drivers in those suburbs returned to their vehicles, to find a ticket on their windshields. 

That rate was up nearly 30 percent on the previous twelve months, when around 400 fines were issued. 

Southport also made the list, ranked the third worst suburb with 166 fines handed out, but it was the only area to actually see an improvement.

In 2016/17, 249 tickets were issued in Southport.
