157.1. Service of a statement of offence may also be made by ordinary mail after the commission of the offence.
In such case, service is deemed completed if the defendant transmits, in respect of the statement of offence, a plea, the whole amount of the fine and costs requested or part thereof or a preliminary application. Moreover, service is deemed to have been made on the day the plea, amount or application is received by the prosecutor.
The attestation of service may be made by producing an extract from the record indicating the date of receipt of the plea, amount or application, certified by the person having custody of the record.
