This notice sets out 1 or more alleged infringement offences. Each offence that is identified by a number is a separate infringement offence. You may decide what to do in respect of each alleged offence individually, and may act in the same way in respect of all alleged offences, or in different ways in respect of different alleged offences, as set out below.

Note: If, under section 21(3A) or 21(3C)(a) of the Summary Proceedings Act 1957, you enter or have entered into a time-to-pay arrangement with the enforcement authority in respect of an infringement fee payable by you, paragraphs 4(b) and (c), 5, and 6 do not apply and you are not entitled either to request a hearing to deny liability or to ask the court to consider any submissions (as to penalty or otherwise) in respect of the infringement.

Payments
2

If you pay the infringement fee for an alleged offence within 28 days of the service on you of this notice, no further enforcement action will be taken for that offence. Payments must be made at the address indicated above.

Defence
3

You have a complete defence against proceedings for an alleged offence if the infringement fee for that offence has been paid to the enforcement authority at the address shown on the front page of this notice within 28 days after service on you of a reminder notice. Late payment or payment made to any other address will not constitute a defence.

Further action
4

You may write to the enforcement authority at the address shown above if you wish to—

(a)

raise any matter relating to the circumstances of an alleged offence for consideration by the enforcement authority; or

(b)

deny liability for the offence and request a court hearing (refer to paragraphs 5 and 9); or

admit liability for the offence, but wish to have a court consider written submissions as to penalty or otherwise (refer to paragraphs 6 and 9).

The letter must be signed by you and delivered to the enforcement authority at the address specified in this infringement notice and in a reminder notice in respect of the offence before or within 28 days after the service of the reminder notice, or within such further time as the enforcement authority may allow.

admit liability; and

(c)

set out the written submissions you wish the court to consider.

The enforcement authority will then file your letter with the court (unless it decides not to commence court proceedings in respect of the offence). There is no provision for an oral hearing before the court if you follow this course of action.

Non-payment of fee

If you do not pay the infringement fee and do not request a hearing in respect of an alleged offence within 28 days after the service on you of this notice, you will (unless the enforcement authority decides otherwise) be served with a reminder notice.

8

If you do not pay the infringement fee and do not request a hearing in respect of the alleged offence within 28 days after being served with the reminder notice, you will become liable to pay costs in addition to the infringement fee unless the enforcement authority decides not to commence proceedings against you.
