Oh. my. word.

R6 100


I just went to the Post Office and opened fines to the value of R4 150.

Last week I got fines to the value of R1 950.


Not ONE is mine.  None.

All on my car though.  Driven by my husband.

I feel physically ill.

I don’t know how we are going to pay that.  Even if we manage to get them reduced, it will be a huge amount to pay.


I didn’t even scream get upset.

What’s the point….

  12. Did you know that they’ve removed the 10km buffer zone too? So now, if you’re doing 61km/h in a 60 zone then you get fined immediately. Before you could be doing up to 69km/h before they fine you. NOT any more. Ugh. I know why you feel sick. What does *he* say about it?

    Tell Tommie- he will pay 4 fines with his ‘golf’ money. Or no golf until there r no more fines. Stupid. Wasteful. Inconsiderate.
    Equate the expense 2 same value in groceries or morgage. Sorry 2 say but he’s being a fuckwit.
