In all cases when a passenger does not pay the imposed surcharge (penalty) on the spot of the inspection, the authorised person shall identify the passenger’s personal data and fill in the “Record of the performed transport inspection” (ROPTI), the copy of which they hand over to the passenger and the original they submit to the relevant department of the Transit Company.
Designated employees shall mark on the ROPTI the date of the receipt and shall enter the stipulated date to the computer database of the debtors of the Transit Company, while each case is automatically assigned a reference number under which the individual case is recorded from the perspective of its development. After this operation, the ROPTI originals are gradually forwarded to the additional payments counter of the Transit Company.
Notice: Personal data of the passengers, who did not pay the imposed surcharge directly on the spot of the inspection, are registered in the Transit Company’s automated system in accordance with the provision of Article 5 (2) (e) of the Personal Data Protection Act No. 101/2000 Coll., as amended, and in this sense they can be used for the purpose of the enforcement of the owed amount as well as forwarded to a law office, courts and executors.
If passengers do not take advantage of the possibility to pay the imposed surcharge (penalty) in a reduced amount (and the fare) in the additional payments counter, then, based on the mandate contract, the ROPTI originals of the unpaid cases are gradually forwarded for further enforcement, including the addressing of the receivables from transport through the way of civil law at the locally competent court.
The receivable from transport shall mean unpaid fare and surcharge to the fare (penalty), as well as other costs incurred within the enforcement process (related to the unpaid cases).
