Red light

Take careful note of the new traffic fines

1. Obstructing a traffic warden on duty: $10,000 fine and/or six months in prison (fine raised from $300 to $10,000)

2. Caught speeding by traffic cameras: $7,000 (new fine)

3. Drag racing on highways without the consent of the Commissioner of Police: $6,000 (fine raised from $2,000 to $6,000)

4. Driving without a driver’s permit: $1,500

5. Driving without a seatbelt: maximum fine $8,000

6. Driving with a child under the age of five without a car seat: $4,000

These are but a few of the new fines

The red light camera system will be enforced. This is different from and is in addition to the speed guns

These cameras will be attached to all traffic lights

Also, the lowly traffic warden who most of us has largely ignored over time will now have the power to impose heavy fines

The demerit points system will also be in place. Traffic violations registered against you will eventually lead to your permit being revoked

Online applications for drivers permit renewals also coming soon
