It’s time to rethink fines…

We recently ran a survey to hear how fines are impacting on young people under 25 years.

The survey highlighted that many of the 150 young people who received fines, cannot afford to pay the fines.

Almost half the young people fined said they could not pay the full fine, with most saying that having a fine added stress to their life, with nearly one quarter of the young people being left with  a large debt they cannot pay off .
