The traffic here in Joburg is notoriously bad, not to mention dangerous.

Here are a couple of interesting stats to do with enforcement of traffic law in the Joburg metro area:
  • Over 99% of all fines issues are for speeding, from speed cameras. Almost no moving offences are caught.
  • Only 13% of all fines issues are paid by the infringers.
  • If someone doesn't pay a fine, there are no criminal penalties.
  • There are over R2 billion (just under $200m) in unpaid fines in Joburg and Pretoria.
Those post brought to you in memory of all the people stuck in rush hour traffic this morning.
