Hi Kimberly,

I do suggest you pay the fines. If you do not, the police will most likely initiate court order and (since you will be out of country) get a default judgment against you. This means that if you wish to return to Australia anytime in the future, you will have to repay the fines then, plus any interest and costs.

Are you disputing the fines?

Will they stop you at the airport? Unlikely.
Should you pay the fines? Yes.
