The Arrive Alive website received a very interesting email from a vehicle owners who was shocked to find that her number plate appeared on another vehicle driven in another province in breach of the road traffic legislation!
Traffic Fine Received:
We referrred this to the vehicle licensing specialists and received the following response:
The person has to write an affidavit to the state prosecutor stating that the vehicle in question and the ticket may be cancelled. In case the person does not want the licence number anymore, they can apply to the Province and be issued with a different licence number.
Hopeful that the information provided answers the question asked.
Unfortunately there is no way other than to contact the state prosecutor to clean the mess caused by fraudulent road users. This leads to frustration on the part of the innocent road user as well as anxiety with regards to the fact that someone may be piling up traffic fines for which you may have to answer. Even though the road user is innocent and can explain that it is not his vehicle, there is an additional anxiety as to whether the traffic police stopping vehicles at road blocks will be as understanding!
