Expiation Notices

About expiation notices

An expiation notice issued by South Australia Police (SAPOL) will tell you what offence you are alleged to have committed. A notice allows the offender to pay a fee rather than go through the court system.

Notices are issued for a traffic offence against the Road Traffic Act 1961 or the Australian Road Rules 1999 or the Motor Vehicles Act 1959 including parking, speeding, red light, and unregistered vehicle offences.

Evidence for an offence can be recorded by road safety cameras or by a police officer.

You can receive an infringement notice by it being:

  •  handed to you by a police officer
  •  mailed to you for red light or speed camera offences.

For notices issued by other agencies or local councils - refer to the information contained on that notice, and for court fines refer to the Courts Administration Authority of South Australia website.
