How Much Should You Pay For A Traffic Fine?

Compare Guru
2017-02-23
Do you know how much you should pay for a certain traffic fine? We take a look at the pre-determined amounts for traffic violations.
Receiving a traffic fine is always a pain in anyone's backside. But, the truth is, they are there to protect not only you but every driver on the road. So, how much should we be paying for a traffic fine? And, are there degrees of infringements for the same offence?

Case Studies

10 years ago, a motorcyclist was charged R100 000 after he clocked up an astounding 297km/h on a road near Port Shepstone. Similarly, a Gauteng motorist who was caught almost doubling the speed limit (216 km/h in a 120km/h zone) was given a R40 000 fine, as well as six-month suspension of his driving licence. A story in 2014 indicated Cape Town's worst traffic offender; a taxi owner who had racked up R110 700 in outstanding traffic fines. He was caught when he tried to renew his vehicle licence at the Greenpoint Traffic Department.
