What to do if you get fined?

Recently, on-the-spot fines in Bali have increased. Imagine the situation - you have been pulled over for improper driving, given out a ticket, and your motorcycle documents and your license have been taken away. So... what do you do next?

There are several tickets for driving without due care and attention. Drivers who break the rules are given either blue or red. Such a ticket is called a Surat Tilang.

The green ones are for the judicial archive, the yellow ones for the police archive and the white ones for the prosecutor's office archives.

A violator who admits that he or she has acted improperly may choose to receive a blue ticket. It can be paid for at the nearest bank branch. As soon as you do, you can go back to the police officer and get back your transport registration and license. The downside to this situation is that you will be charged the maximum amount of penalty that can be imposed on you in this case.

The violator may ask for a red ticket if he or she refuses to admit guilt to the police. If this happens, the process will continue in court. During the hearing, it will be decided whether or not the violation was committed.

The date of the hearing is determined by the police. As a rule, it is about five to ten working days after the violation has occurred. You are not required to pay the maximum fine in court. The judge determines the amount of the fine. For less serious violations (without victims), the actual fine is usually 20 to 40% of the maximum fine.

After you pay the fine, you will get all your documents back.

You do not have to come to court. You can come straight to the prosecutor's office in Denpasar, bring your surat tilang to the special window on the left side of the building, pay the fine and collect your documents.

When the policeman stops a driver, he should politely greet him or her and indicate his identification document. He should explain to the driver what kind of violation was and what article of the law was violated, as well as what amount is subject to payment in the form of a fine.

A policeman should write your name, age, date of violation, date of hearing, the article you violated and the amount of fine on the surat tilang ticket.

If you are given a ticket, you can check the amount of your fine at http://www.etilang.info/

Enter the ticket's registration number in the box below. If the number is valid, you will see the date of the violation, the vehicle type, the number and the fine amount.

To pay the fine, you can use BRI ATMs, bank BRI branches or go to court on the day specified in the ticket.
