The Federal Government has fined banks $4.8 billion over the past six years for failing to pay gravel fines.
The fine includes more than $400 billion in fines for bank run fines, according to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
The amount of money involved in the fine is about $4,000 for every household in Australia, but there is a lot of variation between states.
The FCA said that, in 2016-17, the largest number of fines were collected in Western Australia, which had around 11,000 fines collected in total.
The largest fines were also collected in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
The amount collected by the Federal Government in 2017-18 was just under $1 billion, but the FCA says the largest fines are in Western Australian, South Australian and Queensland.
