I have heard that you risk a crime record if you don't vote.
Is this factual and next to a crime record, what do you risk if you don't vote. Apparently the last decades failing to vote wasn't prosecuted.
A first illegitimate abstinence is punished with a reprimand or a fine of 5 to 10 Belgian franks (to be increased by 1990 additional tax, that is to be multiplied by 200), meaning 1000 to 2000 Belgian franks.
Repetition of this offence will lead to a fine of 10 to 25 Belgian franks (= 2000 to 5000 Belgian franks). If the illegitimate abstinence occurs at least four times in 15 year, the elector is dropped from the list of voters for 10 years, and during that period, he cannot get an appointment, a promotion or a decoration of a public authority.
All-weather Tyres • Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions - good performance delivered throughout the year • Moderate natural rubber content to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 7 degrees Celsius – enhancing grip • Designed with moderate tread depths that have been engineered to help deliver a longer tread life than many summer tyres It's not only on snow and ice that winter tyres come into their own.
Once the thermometer drops lower than 7°C, all season and winter tyres provide you with reduced braking in wet conditions and lessen the risk of aquaplaning - when the snow begins to thaw.
Bank holidays that fall in a weekend will NOT be held any other day.
In temperatures below 7°C the compound and rubber in a summer tyre begins to harden.
Winter tyres, and all season tyres, are constructed with a different type of rubber compound - containing a higher percentage of silica and natural rubber.
This allows winter tyres to remain flexible and perform better in lower temperatures.
