On the spot penalties may be given in respect of a number of specified public order offences1, and a number of road traffic offences may be dealt with by way of fixed penalty2. On the spot penalties and fixed penalties are administered by means of the giving of penalty notices in respect of the offence, which give the offender the opportunity to discharge his liability to be convicted of the offence in return for the payment of a penalty which is significantly lower than the maximum fine for which the person might be liable on conviction
