What happens if I do Nothing?

After a period of 28 days if we have not heard from you we will send a final demand that will include extra charges.

If you don't pay your infringement notice in the prescribed or statutory period, it is referred to the Fines Enforcement Registry (FER), where a court order is issued. When this happens, the infringement notice becomes a court order and further fees are imposed to recover the fine.

There are serious consequences for not paying fines in WA, including driver's license suspension or removal of number plates from your vehicle.
