TV for Traffic Fines

Taking stuff from your home to cover a legal matter has procedures too. The first thing is the sheriff of the court arrives to take stock of what you have and give you a proper notice that the court intends to take goods to a certain value to cover a certain legal verdict against you. There's a long and legal procedure for this.

Also - outstanding fines are simply added to your licence fee (at least in Pretoria it's like this) so you pay them anyway once a year. The story is obviously a lie and I personally wouldn't buy anything from people who are lying to me.

I received this same spam a few months ago. It turns out these okes are in New Zealand, and send out the same stuff to folk all over the globe with a couple of localizations thrown in. Don't waste your bread.

I did some research as well. I found Joe Lazarus is an retired traffic from Durban, and has the kiwi (the guy from New Zealand) help him with his business. As far as I could discover, there are similar products in other areas, but these blokes don't send it our anywhere else. I could be mistaken, but I don't think it really matters.

I can't say I agree with the fear tactics, but we all know he's right in what was said. Since when have the MPD ever wanted us to know the truth?

Consider one other thing as well. They supposedly enacted AARTO with the goal of getting people to start paying infringements because they were "losing" millions in fine money. They are trying to end corruption (good luck with that!) and make the laws "fair".

I have to admit, I used to ignore the occasional infringement notice I would get in the mail. I don't think any of us should any more. unfortunately, I know personally that it can end poorly, after having my wages garnished over a 2 year old fine. The buggers are robbing me now, what was a R500 fine is costing me over R1800 because I "ignored the law" as the magistrate said.

A last note about that "traffic fines toolkit." They are selling information, and seem to be honest in what they're saying. Getting the whole truth from the SA government is almost impossible. I say let them be unless they are hurting anyone. I wish I had known they were farkin' serious!

Here are some links you should read if you are wanting the truth.

https://www.ethekwini.co.za/durban/services/services_news/public-urged-to-ignore-2018hoax2019-traffic-fines-e-mail-1/view (says they aren't refunding any fines)

After reading all this, I think Joe has the best answer. We should ALL learn the laws so we can beat them at their own game.

Well, I've always believed that ignoring fines, summonses and court orders is the cleverest course of action.

Yup! You seem like a really intelligent person. Might you be interested in a little real estate investment I have going at the moment? Rwenzori Moonplots has some stunning deals on the go, with guaranteed returns too.
