Christmas time, traffic fine time!

every year before Christmas we experience a rise in traffic fines (without receipt, paid on the spot) issued to some of our guests for alleged speeding or not stopping at a stop sign.

A table gets shown about the hight of the fine and payment is requested.


You are not required to pay your fine on the spot! If you don’t get a receipt, it will go into the cops pocket straight away.

Ask for a receipt, tell them you don’t have money on you. You can pay the fine afterwards (or the car hire company will debit your credit card should you not pay)

Don’t support bribery!!!

100% agree.

I have been told that if you are driving on a non South African drivers licence that they are not able to give you a fine on the spot. Is this true? I have been told that they need to take you to the police station.

Also if they do not have their name tags on - THEY want money for their pocket!
