Motorists accused of throwing litter out of their cars should face fast-track justice and instant fines, town hall chiefs said yesterday.Something wrong with that sentence? Let's look at it again:
Motorists accused of throwing litter out of their cars should face fast-track justice and instant fines, town hall chiefs said yesterday.Ah, yes. That's it.
At present police or local authority officials who want to fine a motorist accused of littering cannot enforce the penalty if the driver denies the offence. They have to go to court to prove the identity of the person who was littering. Councils want an amendment to laws so that fines automatically go to the registered owner of the car or truck....Yes, it's yet another attempt to stick their hands in our pockets and rummage around for any loose change that we haven't already given them in taxes and rates...
Local government leaders said that the fines would clean up roads and streets as well as raise cash to pay for services at a time when cuts are imminent.To pay for services, eh? What sort of services?
