Zimbabwe Vehicle Registration & Licensing ACT Chapt 12:14 - Traffic fines Police must charge Zimbabwe Republic Police's Inspector Muhoni has brought good news to many motorists who are forced to pay unscrupulous fines by police.

The police boss has revealed that anyone who is made to pay a fine at a traffic roadblock and is not sure how much he should have paid must immediately take the admission of guilt receipt to the nearest police station and get confirmation if they had been rightfully charged. If over charged they can immediately get their money refunded.

Sergeant Mujuru who handles National Police Complaints also echoed Muhoni's sentiments saying that anyone who feels cheated has a right to call the National Complaints Hotline on 04 7036311 where their complaints will be attended to immediately.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police recently also launched a national WhatsApp hotline where members of the public can register their complaints to the police via Whatsapp. The ZRP National Whatsapp hotline number is +263782475000.

Meanwhile, below is a list of OFFICIAL fines that guilty motorists must pay as far as Zimbabwe Government's Traffic Regulations are concerned. My Zimbabwe News recommends that you print this charge sheet and keep it in your car.
