WA in fine trouble
West Australian’s have racked up over $400 million in unpaid fines, Attorney General John Quigley says it’s costing honest tax payers thousands to chase up the payments.
Mr Quigley told 6PR Breakfast he’s been speaking with the social services minister, Christian Porter, and they’ve suggested “that there be a responsible deduction from social welfare payments until the fine is cut out.”
Our listeners told us their experiences with unpaid fines including Matt who said he didn’t know he had a parking fine until he went to apply for a job and they did a background check.
