Chapter 4. Fiscal fine
A fiscal fine is a penalty where you pay money. It can stop the case going to the court. This helps to settle the case quickly. It allows more time to deal with more serious cases.
If the defendant refuses the fiscal fine, they might be taken to the court.
We want to increase the fine from £300 to £500. This gives more options to avoid some cases going to court.
