What we should know about minor offences in Australia?

People shouldn't hesitate to ask for free legal advice through Legal Aid

Not locking your car and smoking in the covered area of a train station are minor offences in Australia

There are several minor offences in Australia that could get you in trouble that you might not know about.

And the consequences can be severe.

Having a dog that is not registered, driving with an overseas license, not locking your car and smoking in the covered area of a train station are all considered minor offences in Australia that could get you in trouble with the law.

If your country of origin has different laws, you might be at risk of committing one of these offences.

Florence Montalvo Cruz is the family solicitor at the Refugee Service of Legal Aid New South Wales.

She says what’s accepted in your home country might differ.
