Traffic Fines
« on: December 18, 2020, 09:20:17 am »
Now and again one gets these SMS' to say a fine or notice have been issued, you must go to some website and pay. I ignore it. What I do sometimes is go to AARTO's website and check for outstanding fines, warrants or court dates. Nothing.

Now I get SMS that I'm will get arrested at roadblocks etc. Are these things scams ? What do you do about it ?

What I understand is that it is not a scam, BUT.....................
they can't arrest you at the roadblock, unless you have been served with a warrant of arrest.    :patch: 

But then we also know that "they" do as "they" like.   :patch:  What is your options if they arrest you at the roadblock?

That's the thing... getting f@cked around. I don't mess with these okes in the WC. I have no qualms about paying my fines, I just want to know its legit.

In the days you got a piece of paper it was easy to sort. I check these SMS's on various sites against different queries and nothing comes up

Further to that , even if you have a warrant of arrest out for you, they need to have that warrant with them from what I understand

I get those SMS's all the time but the balances change constantly.

@Gérrard Ek het al in Kuilsrivier 'n roadblok gesien waar hulle warrants on site gee en manne met blink karre en taxis het op strepe gestaan wat hulle warrant daar issue en as jy nie betaal nie impound hulle jou voertuig. And the jury is out, hulle gaan roadblocks he in Weskaap laat dit klap en dit het reeds begin. Ek betaal maar myne as ek hulle kry. Ek weet ek ry te vinnig.

I renewed mine for the last few years with fines on my account. No problems.

Correct. They will only hold back the vehicle license if you have a fine outstanding because of an expired license disc, like those you get at the mall parking lots from the Boete Betties.
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Dis die ding. Ek wil net weet die kennisgewings is legit dan betaal ek. Die dat ek daarvoor soek op die site maar kry niks.

Waar soek 'n mens om te sien of daar uitstaande fines is ?

(Hopelik as ek in januarie WC toe ry is die roadblocks verby)

By wie bank jy? Op STB se internet bankdiens kan jy sien of daar 'n Enforcement Order teen jou is vir uitstannde boetes.

FNB. Ek het op die AARTO site gekyk vir enforcement oreders en niks gekry nie.

Indeed you will. Happened to my wife. She had an outstanding warrant. If they write you a ticket. PAY IT. Cost us nearly R3k to jump through all the hoops. She couldn't renew her car or her drivers license.

I can understand this if there is a warrant out for you. You were given the chance to go to court and ignored it. I've never received a court notice.

Given how poor the admin is, there might well be one. I just want to know where I can find out about it.

Dan is daar nog geen lasbrief teen jou nie al is daar uistaande boetes dalk.

Ding is, ek stry nie en will nie baklei nie. Soek net 'n legit lys van al my fines dat ek dit kan uitsort. Die vraag is waar kry ek dit ?
