I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
Yes, if it was a No Admission of Guilt Fine, then you will need to go to court and appear before the magistrate who will decide (if you plead guilty) what fine to set.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
