Indications are that many motorists are finding themselves on the wrong side of the law for misunderstanding fines known as Section 56 notices. Read more below:
The City of Cape Town would like to caution motorists against an increase in warrants of arrest being generated for failure to appear in court – in large part because some motorists appear not to understand the difference between the types of fines issued.
As a result, unsuspecting motorists run the risk of being arrested for unpaid traffic fines.
Traffic enforcement agencies generally issue two types of fines – the Section 341 notice and the Section 56 notice.
A Section 341 notice is issued in circumstances where it is not evident who the driver is, for instance, a parking ticket or an offence captured by means of a camera. For such offences, vehicle owners receive fines in the post. If the fine is not paid, a summons follows with a date to appear in court. Continue reading
