There has to be a catch somewhere. there always is.
"There will still be a fine there for people who deliberately make a mistake but it's going to be proportionate and if people settle it early it will be as little as £40."
I've never understood this thing about getting a discount if you pay a fine early.
if it's a £100 fine for killing somebody, and it's proven that you actually did it beyond any doubt. then why do they let you only pay £50 instead of £100 if you pay it within 14 days?
it sort of makes the punishment a lesser crime.
before you would have thought twice because of the expense it will be. but you can go out and kill 2 for the price of one now.
