Cape Town to send out traffic fines via SMS


  • This is a step in the wrong direction. I, for one, will not hand out my ID and other personal details to a website that may or may not be legit simply because I received a text message instructing me to do so. Think of the mayhem that will ensue. Pretty soon we'll be receiving texts from hundreds of different sources, all claiming that one has outstanding fines and offering an easy way to pay these fines online. The general public should not have to risk identity theft or 419 scams because the postal system is failing. That is not our fault. They should find another way to deliver the notification that does not put our personal information at risk.
