    Why wouldn't you take it to court?

    My ex left several spending fines on my name and I signed a stat dec, proved I was at work for at least four of the incidents and proved he was on his way to uni for a few of the others and the fines were waived and put into his name.

    (As we were separated and not on talking terms I had to go to court to make a statement and they were all switched across to his name)

    For her to do this is a criminal offense and if you didn't fight this then you deserved to have to pay IMO.

    My ex had his license cancelled for unpaid fines and it was certainly nowhere near that amount. I really don't see how they would allow it to get to that much without major action. That's a huge amount for tolls... Even at a few times a week it's like 1000 weeks worth?

    And I agree with WCM... Why wouldn't you fight it? You blow up about paying a small amount of CS but don't seem too phased about a 33k debt his ex ran up?

    I have had one red light ticket (I went through the end ave of an orange so was still just in the intersection when the light was red)- $353 and 3 points

    And speeding less than ten ks over the limit- $90 and 1 point.

    I got one speeding fine when Dh & I were newly going out and I was really keen to see him - $120-ish I think.
    Got off a parking fine cos i had the ticket, I'd just forgotten to put it on the dashboad.

    Got another parking fine a few weeks back when i was going to meet some hubber friends in the city, drove through the *worst* rain (literally could not see the road. When I went to park I was so shaken I dented the car behind while parking (just the number plate and I left my details) but then because of *that* I completely forgot to pay the parking

    A disaster of a drive but a lovely evening (with my hubber friends, one of whom was in the car with me poor thing! Wonder if she has recovered from the trauma yet )

    It happens all the time. Or at least It used to. When I worked in criminal defence we had numerous clients with several tens of thousands of dollars worth of fines from using toll roads without an etag. When citylink in Melbourne first came online you only had 24 hours to get a day pass or you'd get a $116 fine.

    Some people didn't realise, some didn't care. The fines added up and often it was the case that licence/rego addresses hadn't been updated so they didn't even know.

    When you worked in this area, what happened if the fines where racked upto someone else and not the driver?

    He didn't know he could take it to court at the time by the time I got with him it would be too late I would think.

    Must be different to NSW... Here every fine states that you can elect to take it to court
