What is Municipal Administrative Sanction?

Since 1999, municipalities may punish uncivic behavior immediately thanks to the system of administrative penalties: illegal dumping, nuisance by neighbors, graffiti, dog shit… The system relieves the courts and the prosecution and ensures an effective sanction. The amount of this municipal administrative sanction, if it is a fine, shall not exceed 350 euros (and 175 euros if the person was a minor at the time of the events).
