    Hi Guys,

    Please give me any advise on these speedfines.
    On Monday I received 3 speed fines from the post box. Then another 2 on tuesday morning, the two I received on Tuesday morning, were the same as 2 that I received on the Monday, the place speed, camera film number, even the pics were the same with every blade of grass even, the only differance now is that they have differant referance numbers, but even a blind person can see the pics and details are the same and this is some sham.

    What should I do, to be honest the speeds are like 108 and 118 in a 80zone, and all 5 add up to R2600, so I know is a tickle, but the fact is they can't fine me twice for the same fines and speed

    Ok,

    By looking at what they are charging you it must be a RTI fine and not uMhlathuze council fine?

    Go see the prosecutor at the mentioned court ASAP. Show him that there has been a problem in the processing of the fine, don't just mention duplication, cause he will then just with draw one of them, you need to argue that the system is faulty, therefore how can they prove the others are correct without any doubt. Once you have proven doubt in there system you are halfway there.

    Use all ammo you have, Clean record (no previous fine)?


    I was stopped in a road block about 2 months back, was issued a summons (which you should never sign - means you accept guilt) for a fine in 2006, stopped at the court and had it withdrawn in 2 mins, I simple asked the prosecutor if he could remember what he was doing on the day 4 years ago? with respect!

    I also got a few fines. They are fine, laying in my draw!
    The last time I had one, I received a reminder, paid the fine and still received a summons.
    An old man came and brought ne the summons.
    He said to me, I musnt worry about the fines.
    Always wait until he comes to bring me the summons. Then go to court and pay them. The court has to give 50% discount, when I pay them cash.
    So thats what I do. Waiting for summons and paying half.
    Stupid system they have here in SA.
    First stupid thing that works for me, though!

    Transport Minister says SA Roads are lawless - Drivers simply ignore paying traffic fines and do not even bother to go to court because they know that nothing will happen to them, since their cases are not prioritised and in many instances withdrawn.Traffic offences during 2008 only being heard in October 2010 and into 2011.
    201779 traffic offences were on the court roll in the Johannesburg Metro Police Department for 2010 for offences committed during 2008.
    132226 for Capetown Metro on the court roll up to October 2010.
    Traffic offences during the current year will, of necessity have to be heard during 2010/1/2/3.:whistling:

    Pay your fines guys, points system kicked in April 1st, and TRUST me they are already enforcing this in Joburg

    Magman, contest it, they have obviously made a mistake, also pay within the amnesty period and get a 50% discount

    I got pulled over 4 times at roadblocks in JHB for fiens I did not know about (since found Payfine) and they threatened to arrest me

    They may not arrest you on a warrant at the roadblocks (but they do) and you WILL land up in a cell getting some summer lovin from baba, making the circle bigger

    Just pay
