RTSA says that failure to settle the fines would force them to serve summons for the motorists to appear before the fast track court.
“The Agency wishes to remind all motorists and fleet owners who received the infringement notices to settle the fines within the stipulated payment period,” reads a statement from RTSA.
“This is in accordance with Section 148 (4) (b) as read with section 225 of the Road TrafficAct No. 11 of 2002. All vehicle owners with overdue payments should expect the commencement of prosecution which will involve summons to appear before the fast track court,” stated the RTSA media department.
“Vehicle will be blocked on e-ZamTIS. This means that both vehicle inspection and vehicle licensing will not be done”.
The statement further reads, “Vehicle will be placed on a list of Vehicles of Special Interest and subjected to random roadside inspections.”
RTSA had given an extension for payment of fines up to a month for offenders but the response has been lukewarm with the regulating body issuing another rallying call.
