Inquiry:  I have some long unpaid traffic fines. The fines are due since 2002 and since then my license is suspended due to ‘unpaid fines’. I can go ahead and make full payment and get my license re-instated. However, I would like to know, if there may be a provision of some waiver/reduction in the fines payable. If so, I would like a consultation in terms of the amount that the fines can be reduced and how much would the same service cost me.

Response:  Unfortunately at this point there would be nothing we could do in assisting to have the fines reduced.  Fines and penalties are generally dealt with at court during the initial defence.  After that period, an appeal would have been one avenue to explore for possible merit.  However, ten years later would be too late for either approach.
