Pay your dues and avoid jail

Published 02/05/2013

WHY does your cartoonist Stevie Lee (Comment, April 26) repeat the misleading story that one can be jailed for 'incorrect parking' or any of the instances listed in the previous day's Belfast Telegraph?

Pay one's dues and avoid prison – it's that simple.
