Effectivity of decommissioning a vehicle in order to stimulate payment of a sanction

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

From 1994 onwards most traffic violations in the Netherlands are settled under the Administrative Enforcement of Traffic Regulations, rendering criminal law in many cases obsolete. In the event of non- or incomplete payment of sanctions the Act provides a number of measures for the coercion of those involved to complete payment. One of these consists of decommissioning a vehicle in order to stimulate payment of a sanction, if other measures (in the collection- or recovery-phase) have been exploited to no result.
