(3)Where the fixed penalty notice in question was given to the defaulter under section 54 in respect of an offence committed in Scotland—
(a)subsection (2) above does not apply, but

(4)Where the chief officer of police or the fixed penalty clerk issues a registration certificate under this section, he must—
(a)if the defaulter appears to him to reside in England and Wales, cause it to be sent to the clerk to the justices for the petty sessions area in which the defaulter appears to him to reside, and
(b)if the defaulter appears to him to reside in Scotland, cause it to be sent to the clerk of a court of summary jurisdiction for the area in which the defaulter appears to him to reside.

(a)give particulars of the offence to which the fixed penalty notice relates,
(b)indicate whether registration is authorised under section 55(3) or 64(2) of this Act, and
