Payment of the cautioning fine
09/23/2019

A cautionary fine must be paid to the bank within thirty days as of the delivery of the notice of fine, providing the data stated on the notice of fine. Each notice of fine includes a payment order and the explanation with separate instructions for proper payment of the cautionary fine to the account of the Ministry of Finance. Upon payment, the proper reference number must be provided.

A cautionary fine is deemed to be paid on time if it is received to the bank account specified in the notice of fine by the due date for payment and includes the reference number stated on the particular notice of fine. If the person responsible for a motor vehicle does not contest the notice of fine but at the same time fails to pay the cautionary fine by the due date, or the cautionary fine has not been duly received due to improper transfer, the body conducting extra-judicial proceedings shall submit the notice of fine to a bailiff for compulsory execution. When preparing the payment order, you must always make sure, prior making the transfer, that all the requested data is accurate and correctly provided, so that the cautionary fine will be received to the bank account of the Ministry of Finances in proper amount and with the reference number stated on the notice of fine.

If the person responsible for a motor vehicle has paid the cautionary fine or it has been enforced, no one shall be punished for the same act by way of misdemeanour procedure.
