I read in the Star paper this morning about the big rush at many police stations of traffic offenders to pay their summonses. This is because of the 50% discount offered to those served with a summons if they pay up within the next 2 weeks.
This is good news for many but there were also some grumblings from some who were prompt in paying their summons. They had to pay the full amount. I can understand their grievance. It would seem that it does not pay to pay your fine on time! ( No pun intended )
Why not reward those who make an effort to settle their summons promptly? Give a discount based on how promptly a person settles the fine. This would encourage many not to delay in paying.
