A traffic ticket is a notice issued by a law enforcement official to a motorist or other road user, indicating that the user has violated traffic laws. Traffic tickets generally come in two forms, citing a moving violation, such as exceeding the speed limit, or a non-moving violation, such as a parking violation, with the ticket also being referred to as a parking citation, or parking ticket.
In some jurisdictions, a traffic ticket constitutes a notice that a penalty, such as a fine or deduction of points, has been or will be assessed against the driver or owner of a vehicle; failure to pay generally leads to prosecution or to civil recovery proceedings for the fine. In others, the ticket constitutes only a citation and summons to appear at traffic court, with a determination of guilt to be made only in court.

    SA 2 Speeding Fines (<10KM) within 11mins of each other

    Firstly, not disputing the fact I was speeding. Do I have any recourse with getting one of the fines dropped. My question relates around 2 points: - Does SA have a similar position as VIC on multiple speeding fines in a short period, where opportunity is given to drivers to "positively alter...

    VIC Time limitation for speeding infringement?

    I've received an infringement notice for a speeding offence that was committed over a year ago (20 January 2018). The offence was for less than 10km over the limit ($198 fine); so it's probably not worth hiring a lawyer and spending time in court, but I'm wondering if it's legal; is there such a...
