    Default Court Summons

    What are the implications of receiving a summons 2 days after the trial date? Since I obviously did not sign for the summons, nor was I aware of the court date (since it took 4 weeks to be delivered as my residential address and not my postal address were used)?

    Its probably for some stupid R100 fine which I will pay as I don't have the time to go to court, but surely this cannot be legal?

    EDIT: fook me, but I've gone to take a look and that fine was settled on payfine.co.za! Now what?

    I'm sure you never received it in that case.

    Could be a neighbour received it and decided to deliver it late.

    Thanks for the support everyone! Now to convince the Metro cops of my innocence.

    Though this is one of the fines I paid, I'm printing up the receipt - looks like I'll be carrying them around with me from now on :/

    Probably been sitting at the front gate security for weeks. But this is not my postal address and there are not post boxes, so I technically can't be delivered except in person.

    Still need to convince the cops though.

    What about those poor sods who really didn't receive the summons and have been hauled away in the tjoekie-van? Wrongful arrest?

    They send it to the address YOU gave them, so I don't think that excuse will fly. Sorry.

    Back into the realm of reality Sackboy......

    timgaul : if you didn't sign for it, they can't prove they ever delivered it.... and if someone else signed for it, its not valid anyway since they can't prove YOU got it.

    I'm not sure that's the 'rule'. Certainly if they are using a correct address, even registered mail is considered proof enough, regardless of whether you rejected it. A hand delivered letter is the same AFAIK. They could attach it to the door if they wanted to. Giving it to a relative normally residing at your address is also valid.

    That the LAW... not the rule.. the LAW...

    nothing is good enough unless they've personally delivered it and made you sign for it.... and giving it to anyone other than you is not good enough.. it has to be delivered to the person it is meant for.

    Registered mail still requires a signature from the intended recipient though...
