I NOTE that fining a traffic offender and other lawbreakers rather than time in jail seem to be much the norm nowadays.
To me this is a blatant “finger up” at the law and the public.
How does the court expect to get money from an offender often already owing thousands of dollars in unpaid fines and who often doesn't have the price of a burger but has a good car?
Also recently a person facing a big fine just declared himself bankrupt.
I fail to see how justice can be seen to be done if it is so easy to get away with breaking the law.
What about impounding cars and or property until fines are paid within a reasonable time, or sell them to recoup the fine.
