Interesting question. In the time that has elapsed, the demerit points that you received for that are now outside of the "last three year" consideration (ie don't count anymore).
I don't know the answer is but is the fine amount the current fine amount or what the fine would have cost in 2014? It should be the latter, and they shouldn't charge interest because they chose to cancel the initial fines? How do you know that it was cancelled twice before? If it was cancelled because they couldn't find you then they may be entitled to charge extra handling fees (you're responsible for maintaining a current address for your licence).
Thanks for your reply. I believe the fine amount is the same. I have been with the same employer since the infringement occurred and I'm still there. My employer has always had my address. The stat dec. that was submitted (naming me as driver) was not completed until 8/2017. The details regarding when the infringements were cancelled and reissued were on the court summons. I also received a letter from the Queensland Police Service stating that pursuant to s56 of the State Penalties Enforcement Act 1999, statute of limitations don't apply. So I'm confused.
Okay, understood. It was a company car and they needed to provide details to the police of who the driver was. Years ago you used to be able to get out of the fine by telling the police that the driver was unable to be confirmed at the time of the incident, so it went away.
I think you should just pay the fine, I mean, you admit to the offence.
