Each municipality handles traffic fines in its jurisdiction. It is your right to view speed-camera photos and contest in writing any traffic fine you may receive.
How do I contest a fine?
You can contest your traffic fine in writing with the municipal traffic department any time before a summons has been is issued. Remember to send a copy of your traffic fine along with your letter.
The traffic department will respond to your challenge in writing. If you are not satisfied with the outcome, you can wait for your summons and send your challenge, in writing, to the traffic department again. The traffic department will then present this letter to the Prosecutor on your behalf. The Prosecutor then decides whether to prosecute, in which instance the case will go in front of a magistrate, or to drop the case.
Please note that writing a letter will not delay the process. If you do not reach an agreement by the court date, the case will appear in court.
What happens if I don't pay or contest my fine?
If you don't pay or contest your traffic fine by the due date and do not appear in court to present your case, a warrant for your arrest will automatically be issued when the case goes to court.
