76. Where a fine is not paid within the ten days following the issue of the infraction ticket, the prosecuting party shall send a preliminary notice by mail to the offender’s last known address. The notice indicates the nature of the offence, the fine payable, which is the minimum fine prescribed for that offence, the amount of the costs, which is $8, and, where that is the case, the number of penalty points entailed by conviction.
The fine and costs are payable within the following ten days.
The fact that an infraction ticket has not been issued does not prevent the prosecuting party from sending a preliminary notice to the offender.
