The Government is banking on traffic ticket inflows to provide a boost to its revenues this fiscal year.

An examination of the 2010-2011 Estimates of Expenditure, tabled in the House of Representatives yesterday, reveals that the state is projecting to collect $350 million through this avenue.

This is 75 per cent more than the $200 million that was written in the Budget as appropriation-in-aid by way of traffic tickets last year.

A total of $38.5 billion has been earmarked for spending on national security, an area the Government has outlined as a priority this year.

Mi tiaad a dis ..ckery  wild

Guys we need to abide by the laws of the road, and ensure that all our papers are in tact!!!!!

Let us fight the government against meeting their $350M target......

Imagine having those fancy Suzuki Police cars blocking a lane of traffic on Waterloo Road in peak hour traffic

Imagine having those Blue-seamed Police officers asking motorist for documents at traffic lights during early morning peak hour traffic  No Clue

Well, I'm hoping the SOCOJ members and by extension the motoring public will comply more for sure!!!!! Generally Police nuh gi blye, so I don't foresee that changing now either  Grin

But on a more serious note........I dont believe there is a plan B.......there will just be a short-fall in expected income AGAIN!

Tweety, one way or the other, they are going to meet that target. I'm sure if they pull you over for one thing you were complaint with, they will find something else to give you a ticket on.

Who knows, when you are going to the country they may give you a speeding ticket with a ridiculous speed you were not travelling at.

This is ludicrous. Ticket fees are in place as a DETERRENT. Therefore, the government should be hoping it's citizens comply with the road laws to result in FEWER CASUALTIES. Bottom line: the money obtained via this route is a plus...as in "we don't bank on it but if we happen to get revenue, great"

HOWWWW can you put a goal in sight for this?? AND a HIGH one at that? Undoubtedly, if it is falling short, the police will be put under pressure to step-up...that is worrisome because that could mean unwarranted tickets (hoping that that would not be the case but  Lips Sealed )
