Thread: Traffic fine relief on the cards for motorists

    Thumbs up Traffic fine relief on the cards for motorists

    October 30, 2008, 13:00

    Gauteng motorists with traffic fines will breathe a sigh of relief this festive season. The Johannesburg Metro Police Department has announced that it will be cutting fines by half for drivers with outstanding fines.

    It’s a lucky break for many who are currently on a tight budget, but the same doesn't apply to those in contempt of court as they'll have to pay half of their fine plus an additional amount. More than 4 million fines are outstanding and 1 million more have warrants of arrest. It's hoped motorists will grab the offer and cough up.

    This concession is said to be introduced to encourage road users to pay outstanding fines. It will also ease the financial burden on motorists during the coming festive season. The system applies to traffic fines received before the end of October 2008. But law breakers caught after this period and who still want a reduction, will have to cough up within 32 days.

    The period of grace comes into effect from Saturday and will continue until the end of January next year.

    I'm still not paying!

    The last fine I got was because I was so late for the airport because every fugging road between my house and OR Thambo is under construction/laying cable/boomed off.
    Jägermeiʃter can fix that!

    I think the 1 million people who have warrants of arrest out against them for traffic fines should go turn themselves in, all at the same time.

    How would you know if there is a warrant out for your arrest?
