Hallo to everyone from South Africa.Just a general question on proving your innocence in a court.In South Africa you are not guilty, until proven guilty .All cases in the magistrates court are heard by a magistrate and cases are proven on the basis of "beyond reasonable doubt"
I was stopped by an officer,who alledged that I did not stop at a stop sign.
I did stop and is going to contest this in court in 2 weeks time.At the time of the incident,whilst the officer was completing my ticket,I witnessed 7 other drivers who failed to stop at the same stop sign.There were 3 officers on duty at the time and when I questioned the officer why they did not stop the others drivers who failed to stop at the stop sign,he said to me "hundreds of drivers fail to stop at that stop on any specific day,and that they do not have the manpower to stop and fine everyone " My question is, can the law be applied selectively, taking into the account that the officers saw the other 7 cars not stopping at the stop sign.



seems in south africa they didn't teach how to read so will help.

Ylen 13- Your comment about S/Africans not being taught to read is totally unwanted.If you cannot contribute constructively,stay away.
Just a simple question to you,can you actually write if you cannot read ?
I guess you probably can,that is why your comment is totally of the mark.
