I speed. I like driving fast (though not dangerously so). Obviously this means I get the occasional fine.
Recently I got a fine on the way down to Durban - payable to Pinetown. I was fine with this, naively expecting to be able to pay it online; turns out Natal is one of the few provinces where I can't, you know, because we still live in the 90s...
My dilemma right now, is that I am in PMB, unable to get off work and have to pay this fine in PINETOWN by this Friday (11th July). Are there any other options open to me? My one thought was asking my girlfriend to go in and pay it for me (as she lives there), but it turns out one needs to have the very document I hold in my hand with you when you go in to pay. There are also no details whatsoever for a bank account into which I could pay the fine - seems the only way is cash or cheque through the post (hello, 90s again). It almost seems as if they are trying to make paying the fine as difficult as possible (no wonder so many people just don't bother).
I heard one could pay through an ATM - although one has to be an FNB client (I am not), would I be able to get someone else who is with FNB to use their account to pay it for me or does it use their personal information to look up the fines?
tl;dr version: I have to pay a fine in Pinetown by Friday; I can't get there in person. What the hell else can I do?
