2. The Fixed Penalty System

Traffic offences range from serious ones resulting in fatal accidents to minor ones like a simple parking contravention.  If all traffic offences were to be brought to Court, there would definitely be an excessive burden on the judiciary.  The Fixed Penalty System was devised to deal with minor offences where the owner of a vehicle is unlikely to plead not guilty and argue the case before the Court.  It saves time for the Court, the vehicle owner and the police.  In other words, everybody benefits.
