Our client was an international student from China whose car was registered under the name of a relative’s company. She went on an extended holiday, during which time an associate had access to her car and racked up eight speeding fines. She received the fines and fail to nominate notices in the mail upon her return. We advised her to plead guilty and in court argued for leniency given the fact that our client would bear the costs of any penalty. The Magistrate reiterated that that was a factor she could not take into account, but reduced the penalty to $1000 for each fail to nominate offence.
