Fine notice General administrative offences


After receiving a fine notice, you have the option of paying the fine within four weeks or lodging an objection within two weeks.

Please note that an objection by e-mail does not constitute an effective objection.

If you lodge an objection to a fine notice, the fines office will first check whether the case can be discontinued.

If the case cannot be dropped, the objection is submitted to the competent court via the public prosecutor's office. If it is handed over to the court, a judge will decide on the fine. In addition to legal fees, court costs may also be incurred.

If the proceedings are discontinued by the court, the state will pay the court costs.
