  • Hypothetical of Course: Interstate Traffic Offence

    As the title suggests, hypothetically:


    1. Vehicle registered in Queensland to a recently deceased person.
    2. Vehicle attracts a traffic offence fine in NSW.
    3. Driver at the time of the offence committed in said vehicle holds a Victorian drivers license.
    4. Mail for deceased person redirected by Aust Post to Victorian drivers address.
    5. Queensland registered vehicle to be transferred to Victorian registration in the very near future.

    Obviously the current registered owner is not positioned to nominate any person who may have been driving the vehicle at the time.

    Should the person who has received the Traffic Infringement Notice simply inform the issuer of the status of the registered owner and nothing more?

    Should the person who has received the Traffic Infringement Notice just ignore the notice?

    Open to other suggestions around this hypothetical scenario.

    For Info the hypothetical infringement is 10kph over the limit and is a $450 fine.

        Normally I would say drag it out and see what happens.

        Deceased and grieving involved, what keys said.

          Yeh as above.....

          Don't ignore it .....the law works very slowly....Cops will knock on the door...( not a great look for surviving family members)

          $450.. meh... would have spent 10 x that at the wake....

          Just my opinion... oh and frame the fine...and receipt..( it's what I did.:-)

          Makes a great addition to the pool room....

          Prior to that ....seek legal advice.......may save you a buck ...or two.

            Thanks for the responses so far.

            No fear about upsetting any existing family, the postal address of the deceased is vacant and there is no surviving family that will be offended, hypothetically the only surviving family member is the Victorian driver and is fully aware of the situation.


            Could it be likely that the NSW authorities bother to chase a fine from a deceased person in Qld or would they just write it off?

              Fine will be written off.

              Eastern states issue with people nominating deceased drivers as responsible for infringement is huge issue for this remote policing method.
              You can't *burrrp* can't just post, just post anything you feel like morty, you just *burrp* just end up *burrp* end up hurting people's feelings morty I mean how, how would you like it if I said things that offended you morty?

                  Yep, complete rip off, 100 in a 90 zone, allegedly, hypothetically, could have, this isn't a true story and the people and events are fictitious.

                    How did they know that it was said Victorian driving? Did deceased forward the fine on before dying?

                      This.

                      The deceased would want to ensure that this is sorted out before he/she gets charged with decaying whilst under suspension.

                      However, I strongly suspect that this one would be put in the "too hard" tray and discarded.

                      Bloody good idea though.

                      Now I need to go find someone dying of cancer, put my stuff in their name and go have some fun for a while.

                        They don't know the Victorian was driving the vehicle, but the Victorian is the person who is the son of the deceased and receiving the forwarded mail.

                        The son is considering returning the infringement notice with a copy of the death certificate and just leaving at that, without any accompanying letter identifying who has sent them the notice and certificate. The hope is that the authorities will just say it is too hard and bin the lot.

                            Police may insist on a name of who has been driving the vehicle at the time, unless deceased was alive and passing away after the fact

                              The person (the registered car owner) they need to get that info from is deceased, the vehicle is still registered to the deceased pending re-registration in another State.

                              I am trying to work out if anyone else is obliged to inform the authorities of who was driving the vehicle.
