Hi! You’re speaking with John Melis, a solicitor in Australia.

If you want to challenge the traffic infringement, you can file an application into the court disputing the infringement notice. You can run your case remotely from Western Australia.
Customer
Is there a statute of limitation. I have just received a traffic infringement notice from The Queensland Police Department dated back to 6th May 2015

There is no statutory limitations on traffic offences. Therefore if you want to challenge the infringement notice, let them run into the court. You can handle this remotely.

I hope this message finds you are well.

Just recapping your circumstance:

If you want to challenge the traffic infringement, you can elect to take the matter before the magistrates Court. Then you can present your case recorded. As you are in Western Australia you can attend this court proceedings remotely due to the lockdown between Western Australia and the rest of Australia. You may make that application to the court to attend by videoconferencing.
