Leniency on traffic fines

2019-04-16 06:00

Motorists who have outstanding fines and warrants of arrests are encouraged to attend the traffic fines roadshow taking place at the Cape Town Civic Centre from 08:00 to 14:00 until tomorrow (Wednesday 17 April).

The roadshow started yesterday (Monday 15 April) and a team of administrative staff, prosecutors and traffic officers are stationed on the Concourse Level of the centre to assist motorists with their fines or warrants.

Mayco member for corporate services Sharon Cottle said the roadshow is a one-stop-shop for motorists to plead for leniency by making representations to prosecutors for a reduced fine, enquire about traffic fines and warrants as well as to settle their outstanding fines.

“Motorists are reminded to bring their ID as well as a copy of the fines for which they would like to have the amounts reduced,” Cottle said.

She said there will be no bulk reduction on fines and that prosecutors will assess each case individually.

“Motorists are further encouraged to take full advantage of this opportunity to clear their records,” she concluded.
