I received a speeding fine recently, so rang civic compliance to make the payment (and I did) at which time they said there was a "warrant" for a fine I incurred in 1999. They couldn't tell me what the offense was, or what the fine was for, but I suspect it was for speeding. They said I owed about $300. I know I didn't receive any speeding fines in the mail or otherwise I would have paid it. I wasn't making any attempt to avoid the fine. I simply never knew about it This happened 16 years ago. and I only just found out about it! So much water under the bridge. I've recently taken out a home loan and it wasn't flagged as an unpaid debt. I've been pulled over by the police and they never mentioned anything. I've also renewed my drivers licence, and nothing was mentioned. Does stuff like this expire under Traffic Law? I did some googling and read that fines expire after 5 years. I read this http://www5.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/vic/consol_act/ia2006161/s62.html and this Victorian government kicks out IT supplier after infringement management system blowout | afr.com Can someone please help me with this? Do I have to pay? What happens if I don't pay? I have now provided civic compliance with my current address. Will the sheriff now be coming for me? Thank you!
