(1) If the alleged
offender has completed a CIS in respect of a CIR within 28 days or such
further time as is allowed under section 8L, the bringing of proceedings and
the imposition of penalties are prevented to the same extent that they would
be prevented if the alleged offender had been convicted by a court of, and
punished for, the alleged offence.
(2) Completion of a
CIS is not to be regarded as an admission for the purposes of any proceedings,
whether civil or criminal.
