Best JeanineEen "amicable settlement" means that you agree with the fine for the offense made. You do not before the court in the event that you verantwoorden.In the amicable settlement assumes they'll send the ticket, then this can come betalen.Een choice of language because Belgium is a tri-lingual country. . This applies only if you have the amicable settlement refused / do not agree with it and decide on a lawsuit to let komen.Als you pay the fine, there are no further gevolgen.Mvg - Sjaak
