So a warrant for your arrest would only be issued if you ignored sper and the fines.

My hubby's ex ran up a whole heap of fines and HE was arrested lucky he could prove he was working 2000k away at the time of fines. That made him change car out of his name.
Living in Sydney it's near impossible to not get fined.
I think the governement would go broke without us all breaking the law.
The highest fine I got was parking in a disabled spot. Around $400 from memory.
But I spent half my life paying fines off.. Lol never lost my license or been in an at fault accident so that's something. I actually think I got busted speeding a few weeks ago 70 in a 60 zone. Waiting for the fine.
No fines... I have been driving my own for 8/9 years.
In VIC about 5 years ago, I had just registered a car and Vic Roads stuffed up and mis charged me, which redflagged the system. I was pulled over and booked for having an unregistered car. A 6 point $1300 fine.... What the feck!
The policeman worked out what happened with Vic Roads (I had no idea) and it was all sorted in 2 hours. The fine and my complaint was sent to the magistrate and it was all waived and a formal apology given for the inconvenience.
So yeah technically no fines as yet. Touchwood.
It takes alot for them to arrest you for unpaid fines. They give lots and lots of warnings before a warrant is sent out and even then if a sherriff comes they ask you to make a payment arrangement or pay some small amount and arrange the rest. Dh had unpaid fines for like 10 years! Just kept going in and out of arrangements. They also do this thing every couple of years where they waive all court costs added to the fines (which is why its easy to rack up so much money in them) Then you arrange a payment plan and just pay that off and they're very flexible with how much you pay.
I think they make it easy tbh and aren't so strict with how and when you pay it, as long as you keep in contact with them and are paying something towards it. But I don't know anyone who's gone to jail, it would have taken them a long time ignoring the warning letters and evading the sherriff to get to that.
$250 for having my phone on my lap! Wasn't even touching it or holding it!!
