Hi All,

I returned from Kruger this year to find a speeding fine letter.

Why should this be a scam? :wall:

We also got a fine, at a famous spot where the speedlimit goes to 60 for a bit, with the signs there, but almost hidden. And we knew we had been there, doing around 100, instead of 60.

There are a topic about this kind of behavior. :twisted: have a look here. :wink:

Nope. :D That is in Kruger. This is outside... And for international visitors that intend to come back to SA can become quite a hassle. Which, when you include the Africa virus, is quite likely.
We had a fine of R1000, and a banktransfer costs about R350. So in our case "only" 1/3 extra. But in Johns case?

I will just say that I have a couple of those fines myself. As spotted in an Irish pawn shop, framed fines with the following above the fine; "Genuine Unpaid Irish Traffic Tickets"

Hi John,

How do you know you were quilty of speeding. By paying the fine you admit quilt, but if not the court need to proof you did drive that fast and you were actually driving the vehicle at that time.

I've received speeding photo fines of driving along say Voortrekker street with a restriction of 60 km/h, but when looking at the pic it was actually taken along the main road between two towns with a speeding limit of 80 km/h.

If they don't pull me off and issue the fine I do not pay. You may receive a summons later (in the UK I doubt), but that you can defend at the magistrate office specially if its older than 6 months and get free from paying.

Rather wait until you back in SA and then if required pay the fine.

John I know how you feel!! :whistle:

As you may know we spend 6 months each year in SA, but we don't have residency, so we have to apply for a 3 month extension to our normal 3 months holiday visa.

It used to be a simple matter, of going to our local Home Affairs Office in Port Shepstone, and filling the required forms in and paying the fee...........they stamped our passports, and that was it!!

Now everything has to be sent to Pretoria..............and boy, does that present problems!!!

Last year, we applied as soon as we arrived, like we always do, but by the time we were due to fly home six months later, our application was still"pending".

We were assured that it would be ok, but we had a scary time at the airport, until the manager came to sort it out!! I had visions of a permanent ban, a prison sentence and a hefty fine!! :big_eyes: :lol:

Hope you come right here.......you seem to be getting conflicting advice. :wall:

It is a good thing to do J & P but I see that you haven't taken up my offer to assist.
