Fines based on circumstance
2:09pm Thursday 21st June 2012 in News
I HAVE recently encountered a number of cases involving mandatory fines.
Clearly they are unfair since well-off people may shrug aside the fine but, for example, pensioners and citizens with heavy family commitments find them a serious imposition.
Surely the mandatory fine should be based on your percentage of income and circumstances?
The present system is grossly unfair.
I trust that our councillors and MPs will rectify matters.
