According to The Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service, 86% of issued fines between 2019 per 2020 are being paid or on track to be paid.
David Fraser, SCTS executive director of court operations, disse: “The latest figures continue to show welcome progress as we recover from the effects of the pandemic, with fine collection rates rising across the board.
“We continue to recognise that the current economic climate may impact people’s ability to pay fines and urge anyone who is struggling to pay to get in touch with us so we can provide advice.
“tuttavia, just ignoring fines and doing nothing is not an option. We will employ robust sanctions against offenders who we are satisfied to have failed to pay without a reasonable excuse.”
Fraser warned that Fines Enforcement Units could also freeze bank accounts, arrest earnings, make deductions from benefits or obtain arrest warrants.
He advised contacting them to make suitable arrangements to pay to avoid actions being taken against those drivers who failed to pay their fines.
