CoCT introduces new online system to pay traffic fines

The City of Cape Town has made it easier for Capetonians to pay their traffic fines with a new online system, Pay City.

According to Executive Director of Safety and Security, Richard Bosman, it's a more convenient way of ensuring that all traffic fines are paid up, and queuing kept to a minimum.

When you fail to appear in court after summons were issued, a warrant of arrest will be issued.

So what the Department of Justice has done is that they have introduced a fixed Admission of Guilt fee of R300. We've put all that on an electronic system and after paying the admission of guilt fee as well as your fine, you don't need to appear in court.
