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?

Surely it's obvious to everyone that it's the non-payment of the fine that carries the risk of prison, rather than the offence itself.

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