It's payback time for cheats

PUBLISHED March 8, 2004

Fine defaulters were given warning yesterday of tough new measures to force them to pay. Non-payment of court penalties and on-the-spot fines including speeding tickets could mean jail or having the amount owed deducted from salaries or benefits. New measures under the Government's Operation Payback will allow officials to order wheel-clamping even if the fine is not for a motoring offence.
