It often happens that you have violated the traffic rule and even when you are stopped, you argue with the police and defend your rights to say: where the video, photo and video recording, until you show I did not do it, if before it could help you now, as well as actively furnish all the cameras, in a couple of months it will be hard to prove anything and also some drivers at the scene of traffic violations and police report, refuse to sign it, believing that it makes it possible not to pay the fine. They say that I do not have my signature, so I have not seen any report, I know nothing and I may not pay. But that opinion is wrong and has serious consequences.
According to the Traffic lawyer, the policeman immediately makes a note that the driver refused to sign the decree. Appeals against the fine are given 10 days from the date of issuance of the order, for payment - 15 days from the date of delivery. After the refusal, the police must send the order to the place of residence of the offender. However, it is not known when the order will be received by mail, if at all.
If the driver does not have a copy of the order, he can neither pay the fine (no amount, no payment details) nor appeal against it (no basic proof of the fine, no details of the policeman who made the decision). At the same time, failure to pay or appeal a fine within the time limits stipulated by law entails doubling the amount of the fine and transferring the materials to the enforcement service by the police, which in turn will charge double the amount of the fine with the costs of enforcement proceedings, or prohibiting the driver from travelling abroad.
So, the driver's refusal to get a copy of the ruling at the scene of the violation only harms him. Therefore, we do not recommend refusing to receive a copy of the fine decree. It is always better to act as the law prescribes, and then, if you believe that your rights have been violated or the penalty is unjustified, go to court. It is true that recently the decision of the Supreme Court to appeal against a fine for traffic violations has become more difficult.
