Naomba mawazo yenu, hivi ni kwa nini traffic police, wanakomaa fine ilipwe pindi wanapo kamata ukitenda kosa, hivi kweli inakuwa vigumu traffic kuelewa kwamba, kuna wakati mtu unakuwa hauna pesa za kutosha kulipia lile kosa.
Cap 168 The Road Traffic Act S 95, G.N no 20 of 1974 is very clear on punishment without prosecution:
(3) Where a police officer has reason to believe that any person is committing or has committed an offence to which this section applies, he may serve him with the prescribed notice in writing offering the opportunity of the discharge of any liability to conviction for that offence by payment of a fixed penalty under this section; and no person shall then be liable to be convicted of that offence if the fixed penalty is paid in accordance with this section before the expiration of twenty-eight days next following the date of the notice or before the date on which proceedings are begun, whichever event last occurs.
(4) Where a person is served with a notice under this section in respect of an offence, proceedings shall not be taken against such person for that offence by any police officer until after the expiration of twenty-eight days next following the date of the notice.
