For parking offenders or speeding offenders, it can make a difference whether they have to pay a warning or a fine. Because a contradiction is only possible with one of the two annoyances.
Parking offenders or speeding offenders who were not more than 20 km / h too fast generally do not receive a fine, but a warning. This is practically the unbureaucratic version of the fine. The amounts collected are comparatively low at EUR 5 to EUR 35, as no administrative costs are taken into account. In compensation, there is no legal remedy against warning monies.
Objection only for notices of fines
You can only object to fines. So anyone who receives a warning notice and considers it unjustified simply ignores it. After a certain period of time, the competent authority automatically sends a notice of the fine. This also happens if the deadline is unintentionally missed. An objection can be lodged against this follow-up decision. However, the required amount is automatically higher, as administrative costs are also required in addition to the warning fee. These are usually around 23.50 euros.
Regardless of this, a notice of fines is always sent in the event of serious traffic sins, for example in the event of speeding of more than 20 km / h. The right of objection is of course still valid. If you want to know how expensive it is to violate traffic regulations, you should take a look at the catalog of fines published by Autogazette.
