Crackdown on unpaid traffic fines
The new law would remove a step in the procedure for unpaid fines, according to Sudpresse newspapers. This would allow the prosecutor's office to proceed to an order for immediate payment following two invitations to pay after the expiry of the term. The offender would then have one month to dispute the order at court. Should the fine remain unpaid, consequences could involve a direct deduction of the owed amount by the tax authorities, a driving ban or even a clamped wheel on the offender's vehicle.
