2015年2月在澳洲租车墨尔本大洋路自驾,不小心在一处限速80的地方超速(实际时速才87,也太严格了吧!!),但是当时并不知道有违章,等到回到国内收到了澳洲挂号信发过来的罚单,185澳币!!租车公司也从之前的信用卡里扣了手续服务费110澳币(非常昂贵,详见后面详情),经过查看网络多个帖子,并在维多利亚州违章处罚官网,找到了可以申请免于罚金的说明(详见下文),抱着试试看的态度,给墨尔本交通处理部门写了一封信(一定要是纸质的!)。经过1个月的等待,收到了回信(也是纸质的),取消罚金,并且返还到我之前交罚金的信用卡内,至此首次申诉成功!!

一直以来想将这次成功申诉的经验分享给大家,可是一直懒于提笔,终于在LP大人的催促下,时隔一年将这个帖子发出来,希望可以给到各位童鞋帮助。后附详细流程及恳请信WORD版。

关于租车行违章手续费问题:

Hertz(赫兹),AVIS(安飞士)等这类全球连锁的大租车公司,我就不多介绍了,想要出国旅行租车的小伙伴一定不会陌生。我之前在珀斯租过Hertz,好处是有车辆全险服务。不过那一次没有遇到违章的问题,所以关于租车后,一旦发生违章,租车行所收取的手续服务费,并没有多加留意和比较,但据说大的租车行手续费较低,一般也就几十澳币。

此次在墨尔本租车,信心满满自己良好的驾驶习惯和驾驶技术,并且坚信一路小心翼翼,绝对没有想到自己会违章~~,所以选择了一家当地小的租车公司EAST COAST,价格低廉,所以就忽略了一旦发生违章,所产生的高昂手续服务费问题。

所谓手续服务费,就是一旦你发生违章,车行会把你之前租车提供的国内具体信息提供给交通处理部门,仅此一项,在国内看似只需要分分钟就可以完成的工作,在车行那里,就是提供了服务,这笔价格不菲的服务费也就必须的给,这个费用和你的违章罚金是分开计算的,无论你申诉成功与否,服务费车行会在不打任何招呼的情况下,直接就从你的信用卡里扣掉了!我选的这家车行的服务费就高达110澳币!!如果童鞋们非常有可能发生违章的话,那一定要在比较各家车行租车费用时,把这笔服务费预计进去,这个费用一旦发生可比你的租车费用高多了!

关于违章罚金:

一旦发生违章,澳洲方面会邮寄给你一份纸质的信件,上面会清楚的写明你的罚单号和详细的违章内容。如果违章事实存在,那就按以下步骤申诉,如果你确定违章的不是你的车,那就更必须申诉了。不过,无论怎样,罚款是必须先交的,除非你以后不再打算去澳洲了,否则不良信用记录是可大可小的。罚金的缴纳是有期限的,逾期是否会收滞纳金,我不确定,不过如果必须得交得话,还是不要冒那个风险的好。

关于申诉:

申诉是重点,毕竟我们最终的目的是为了免去罚金,降低损失。

澳洲官网上有以下说明,可以提出申诉,免去罚金,改为“警告”

Official warnings

Some motorists can be let off with an official warning.

If you have recently received a speeding fine, but have had a good driving record in the past, you can apply for a second chance.

Victoria Police has the discretion to let drivers off with an official warning. Each application for an official warning is judged on a case-by-case basis. You can apply for an official warning if you:

1. hold a current driver licence (includes probationary licence holders but does not include a learner drivers permit holder)

2. have not been issued with a speeding, other traffic fine or official warning within the previous two years

3. were caught doing less than 10kph over the speed limit (say, 68kph in a 60kph zone)

4. do not deny that you were speeding.

作为游客,我们肯定在澳洲近年内没有违章记录,除非你这两年之前去过并且也违章过,对于初次违章的,第一、二条我们都符合,第三条说的是超过限速10公里内,这点我这次违章符合,对于不符合的能不能也蒙混过关,申诉成功,童鞋们可以死马当活马医,试试无妨。第四点,我觉得也很重要,就是一定不要狡辩违章事实,坦诚的承认,毕竟人家都给你改过的机会了,这一点我觉得国内的交警蜀黍应该好好学学,不要动不动就开罚单,法外还有情呢。

在官网上缴纳完罚金后,我们就可以着手写信了(一定是先交罚款后申诉哦,这是态度问题)。以下是我申诉信的全文,供童鞋们拿去使用(本人英语水平有限,只为大家方便,写的不好,勿喷!)

Application for Official Warning

Dear Sir/Madam,

My name is X. As a Chinese tourist, I had a tour in Melbourne on Feb 23, 2015. Recently I received an infringement notice from the Road Safety Camera Enforcement Agency: Victoria Police. I am writing this letter to apply for the official warning instead of penalty due.

First of all, I do not deny that I committed the offence. Because it was my first time driving a car inAustralia, throughout the whole driving I tried to make the speed control at 80 km / h on the road carefully. At the time of the offence, I was driving in a single-lane road and the car was automatic. Because being fixed in one position a few long time, there were some leg numbness. A little more power could make the car a little acceleration uncarefully. When viewing the speedometer faster, I reduced the speed, it was too late. I must admit that I was not paying enough attention to the speedometer.

I realize that this is no excuse, but I am hoping to apply for the internal review and your kind re-consideration based on my good driving record. I have not had any traffic infringement in the last five years in china. This is my first time driving in a foreign country, I had three day’s driving, in Melbourne and the Great Ocean Road, and I had one traffic violation only. So I am very carefully always, definitely not intentional speeding.

I am a teacher, complying with the legislation is basic quality. I believe that I have been a responsible driver, which can be proved by the fact that I have never been involved in any traffic accident since I obtained my license, and I have never had my driver’s license cancelled or suspended, never speeding in my country.

I do apologize for not being careful enough and I admit that I did not abide by the speed limit at the time of the offence. But I do hope that you can kindly withdraw my infringement notice and give me an official warning instead. Your time and consideration of this is greatly appreciated. Enclosed is my detail information of infringement notice.

Yours sincerely,

X

My Information:

Full name: X(全名)

DOB: 00.00.1900,(出生日期)

Address: XX street No. XX, X district, X city, X Prov.China(国内信件地址)

drivers licence: 2000000000000 (驾驶证号)

Permitted Speed:80km/h (限速)

Alleged speed:84 km/h

Detected speed:87 km/h (违法速度)

Due date:14 Apr 2015

Approximate place of offence: princes highway,colac west between rossmoyne road and corangamite lake road (违法地点)

大家要切记,信的内容一定要诚恳,狡辩是没有意义的。邮寄海外挂号信即可,尽量选择封面干净的信封,否则公司、单位那种上面有中文或者其他信息,会投递错误的,毕竟歪果仁看不懂中文,会产生乱码给你退信的。

邮寄出去,大约1个月,会收到免去罚金,改为“警告”的信件。在此之前,注意查看你的信用卡信息,如果澳洲接受你的申诉,成功的话,信件收到之前,半个月左右,罚金返还应该是更先收到的,哈哈~~~

至此,大功告成!!

其他需要说明的问题:

之前看过其他童鞋的帖子,说罚单上的罚金金额高的吓人。

我收到的第一封罚单,是租车公司转给我的,不过是我再三和租车公司邮件沟通,并且表明我的立场:如果不给我看罚单,我就注销信用卡,冻结它从我这里扣掉的手续服务费!租车公司最后还是以电子形式发给我了他们收到的罚单详情,上面的金额真是天价(见下图)。

2952澳币!!!!!!!真是天价罚单啊!!!!

当时我真的是快被吓死了,好在只是轻微的违章,仅仅超速几公里,再怎么缺钱,澳洲也不会这么欺负人吧。心里有底了,也就没被这个天价罚单真的吓死。

不过为什么车行收到的和纸质信件发给我们自己的金额会有这么大差异,我也不得而知。不过,具体罚金还是以收到的官方纸质信件为准,因为那上面的Ref号码,才是最准确的,才能查出我们真正的罚金(这个号码和车行转给我的第一封电子版上的号码,不一样!!)。

所以,如果发生租车公司以违章为由扣掉手续服务费,首先你索要他们手里的电子罚单,即便罚金不准确,但是违章详情是准确的。如果确为你租车期间的违章,那就做好交钱的准备吧,随后的时间就注意查收挂号信。如果迟迟没有收到信件,那就主动给澳洲交通部门写信,索取罚单,这样你才能官网交费,然后再申诉。

写在最后:

国外自驾虽然自由畅快,但是也有出险索赔,违章罚款的糟心事。如果想玩的安心,还是尽量租全险的车子,并且提前咨询好违章手续费,否则,一旦回到国内,扣你一笔不菲的手续费,就真的很不值了。归根到底,安全驾驶,远离危险,绝不违章。祝童鞋们自驾愉快!

谢谢分享。$2952的罚单是因为车辆的信息是注册在租车公司名下,罚单是寄给公司的。看你提供的材料日期,你的租车公司应当是收到罚单以后向交通局递交了你的驾驶信息,交通局取消了给公司的罚单,改成给你个人寄罚单。因为开给个人的罚单是要扣分的(这边叫demerit point,三年积累到12分会被吊销驾照),开给公司因为没法确定驾驶者是谁一般会更贵但可以避免被扣分。
