Hi, I have been issued a fine by the EAP for a wrapper being disposed from the window accidentally. Do you have any advice?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

NSW

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

My friend recieved a letter in the mail with a fine it fell from the passenger seat where I was seated.

Good Afternoon

Accidentally or not, it is still illegal.

You can send a letter and explain that it was an accident and request it be withdrawn but I suspect they wont and you will have to pay it.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
