Screen Shot 2015-12-26 at 12.39.17On September 21, 2015, the Zambia Police Service announced that it had increased fees and fines for traffic offences and services.

Police spokesperson Charity Munganga-Chanda said motorist that would be found driving unlicensed motor vehicles will be required to pay K450 while those with expired test certificates will be slapped with a K225 fine.

He said motorists with defective tyres will be made to pay K300 while use of a handheld mobile phone will attract a fine of K450.

A few days later, PF government spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili announced that his cabinet had overruled the police and ordered them to be charging old fees.

But the police are charging even more than the hiked fees as can be seen from this documents which was issued to a motorist on Christmas day.

This motorist was yesterday charged K300 for an expired certificate of fitness.
