The Justice Project South Africa (JPSA) says innocent drivers, who are wrongfully fined for speeding, can challenge their fines.
JPSA chair Howard Dembovsky explains how to challenge an incorrect traffic fine sent in the mail, particularly those issued while travelling.
This comes after some complaints about incorrect traffic fines issued while driving through Riversdale on the N2 highway.
He unpacks the procedure and adds that some speed traffic technology can be faulty.
If you are of a firm conviction that you were not doing that speed, you can make a representation in writing to the public prosecutor for that particular jurisdiction.— Howard Dembovsky, Chairperson of the Justice Project South Africa
There are lots of technical issues.— Howard Dembovsky, Chairperson of the Justice Project South Africa
It's not for you to prove that you were not exceeding the speed limit, it is for the authorities to prove that you were.— Howard Dembovsky, Chairperson of the Justice Project South Africa
