Traffic Police now issues advisory
In the past, the Traffic Police is strict. They issue a fine for each traffic offence.
This has now changed. My daughter received a letter from the Traffic Police. Her car was found to have exceeded the speed limit along Lornie Road. The letter said that the offence merited a fine of $150 and 4 demerit points. But, the Traffic Police is issuing an advisory in this instance - i.e. they are not asking for payment of a fine. Wow!
My sceptical friend said that general election is around the corner. But, I think that the Traffic Police is adopting a more friendly, advisory approach, and should be commended.
