Judiciary suspends collection of traffic tickets

The Judiciary has suspended the collection of traffic tickets issued before May 26, 2020, until further notice.

Already payment of tickets up to this period has seen a 50 per cent discount and two extensions.

The suspension came in the latest court direction on Wednesday, from Chief Justice Ivor Archie.


Traffic tickets received from May 27, 2020 to the present can be paid at select TTPost outlets as part of the Ministry of Works UTURN system which includes a new electronic ticketing system,

Already all court buildings are closed to the public and the Judiciary is offering several e-service options, with exceptions for urgent matters, including payment of cash bail, but these are by appointment only.

The court rules also allow for e-filing of court documents and virtual trials, while unrepresented members of the public can make appointments to visit a court to use a kiosk.
