December 30th, 2012
If you have been watching the television or listening to the radio recently, you would have heard about the traffic-ticket amnesty currently in progress. This amnesty which will expire on the 31st of December 2012, applies to offenders with unpaid traffic tickets that were issued before September 21, 2010. It allows them to incur no additional fees or penalties on these tickets, once they are paid in full before the deadline.
Although the amnesty was implemented by the government in July of this year, it seems persons have waited until now to actually make use of it, and now many persons are begging for an extension.
However, the Minister of National Security Hon. Peter Bunting says there will be no extension to the traffic ticket amnesty.
“We will not be extending the amnesty, and, in fact, for the last two months or so we have increased our media advertising, alerting motorists that December 31 would see the end of the amnesty” the Minister said.
Do you believe this is the right move by the government, or do you think there should be an extension of the traffic-ticket amnesty? Go ahead and have your say…
