Tickets issued by local wardens may be paid on the same
day that they are issued because these are captured electronically and data is
transmitted in “real-time”. However, since police tickets and tickets
originating from ADT enforcement officers are still issued manually they
require a longer period to be processed. This depends on various factors which
are not all within our control. In the worst case scenario these tickets may
take up to forty-five days to be entered into the system and thus become
available for payment. Tickets issued by Education Welfare officers may
only be paid after the Local Tribunal has delivered judgment. Due to the nature
of these offences, the person is requested to appear before the Local Tribunal
so that the Commissioner for Justice may speak to the person and educate him on
the importance that the child in his care attends school regularly.
The 7-day payment period on the back of the police ticket
and on the local warden tickets refers to the initiation of tribunal
proceedings and therefore you will not incur any further fines or penalties
even though this 7-day period has elapsed as long as you pay the ticket before
the tribunal date.
