New dedicated courts for minor traffic offences

Minor traffic offences will be dealt with by new dedicated courts under plans announced by the Government today.Setting up special traffic courts will free up magistrates to deal with more serious cases, according to the Ministry of Justice.About half a million traffic cases are heard by magistrates each year, often taking longer to process than major offences, the department said.The...

DANGER: Justice Lite ahoy

Why do you need a "prosecutor" to handle a guilty plea? That's just a case of sentencing, and if it's a "minor" offence then it should have been deal with by FPN. They'll end up trying contested cases in these kangaroo kourts - with an assumption of guilt - mark my words well.

On line

Why not have on line courts to save us all the time wasted going to court altogether in most instances.


I mean most people have web cams and if they are so minor in status then why not simply have an on line court system.

You tell your story over a web cam the judge see it, you can provide your video evidence over the net and receive your sentence or fine or whatever or acquittal with an email.


Of course more serious situations need a personal appearance, but they are only talking about minor instances so it would work fine.

They tried this a few years ago , courts on Saturday etc. It came unstuck because of cost  and getting witnesses to court on weekends  ,mainly the police . It will only last if they can catch enough drivers / riders  to pay for the idea through fines and costs , most of us are wise to the tricks to milk  us , so it"s probably a dead  duck ,and will be slowly  forgotten within a year or two  . The government have put -up most  costs and it now costs a small fortune to pass any vehicle test , the latest is another test upon hitting  66 ,the year most folk will be retiring in the future . The least amount of accidents with that age group - but hey !  what"s that matter  when money grabbing is involved ? .
