    Actually, given the standard of driving in PE, it could certainly assist in making our roads safer but, the point I was trying to make, is why is the system backlogged if they're not issuing fines?

    FYI there's a MacD's at the corner of Samantha Way & Cape Rd in PE where the traffic cops regularly eat and robot jumping (plus accidents) are the norm - they could easily write 10 tickets while eating lunch.

    apologies. missed the point you were trying to make. Understood.
    But I still stand by my point that number of fines issued is about making money and not safety (my opinion and not sure if fact or not).

    That made me think of the old people who drive around walmer and on cape road I want to run them off the roads. Applying JHB driving to PE roads means that you look like the chop whose in a hurry...Sigh I live in the wrong city.

    Well I personally think I've earned my GP plates because when I'm in JHB with my EC plates, I get a lot of flack but I fit right in driving wise, I've driven there enough to think so. There are a lot of traffic cops and cameras in JHB tho, I hope I don't get into this guys situation with the late fines

    Actually the municipality is bitching because the the traffic department isn't making any money:
