A Gauteng motorist has written to 702 asking for some clarity on whether the traffic department has changed its laws on renewing car licences.
He was apparently told that he cannot get a new license as he apparently has outstanding fines on the vehicle. He was therefore told to go pay the outstanding fines before the renewal.
This has had many motorists joining the chorus in expressing their frustrations, saying the process is painstaking and takes longer.
There have also been delays in mail delivery, with some saying they have never received the fines in the mail and the SA Post Office has been blamed for failing to deliver mail on time.
