Re: Late payment of a simple speeding fine

LU also sends a reminder. At least that was the information what I got over the phone.

Be aware, not paying a simple fine is the same as contesting it. There is no late fee. But the follwing will happen:

- Fine/case is sent to prosecutor.
- Prosecutor will look at evidences and the driver's statement.
- If prosecutor thinks the dirty deed has been done he will issue a new fine.
- The amount of the fine can be the same as the one of the simple fine, or higher, or lower. Lower is super very rare and would need very, very, very good explanation and evidences. Higher is possible if there were previous speeding and traffic offences (excluding simple fines paid on time, they are anonymous). Same as the original fine seems to be a standart procedure hwen a fine was simply not paid in time.
- In addition to that there is a processing charge (Schreibgebühr).

If you have legal insurance they might reimburse the processing charge.
