If you don't pay your fine and you ignore all reminders, the Magistrates' Court may issue an Enforcement Warrant against you and a fee of $60.20* will be added to your fine.

Once an Enforcement Warrant is issued, if necessary a sheriff's officer has the power to search for and seize property or your vehicle to sell, wheel clamp or detain your vehicle, or arrest you so that you are brought before a magistrate.

Learn more about what happens when the Sheriff contacts you on the Department of Justice and Community Safety website.
