they will most likely seek the out-of-court fine indicated on your offense notice

if this was your 2nd, 3rd .. 4th time repeating the offense, then maybe... keep in mind the fine amount is upto the Justice of Peace; if you can show exception circumstances related to your financial stability, you might even get zero fine, or something ridiculously low

i have yet to see a prosecutor threaten with the $1000 fine, they usually threaten with the fine on the offense notice + applicable demerit points
