RoadSave says I have no fines, but when I checked with traffic departments, they told me I have outstanding fines?
This could be due to a number of reasons:
- The fine might have been recently updated by the local authority and a redirection was done.
- The local authority system was off-line when we initially queried for new fines.
- There were data sync issues with the local authority's system and this was only fixed recently.
- The ID number could be registered with another Fines Administrator already.
