Durban - Errant motorists owe the eThekwini municipality R1.4bn in traffic fines, the Mercury reported on Thursday.

Only 14% of the fines were paid this year, according to a report the city's metro police tabled at the city's finance and procurement committee on Wednesday.

According to the report, R3.7m of the outstanding fines dated back to 2005.

The latest figures show that in September a total of 3 145 fines were issued for red traffic light violations, 13 403 for speeding, 16 867 for parking violations and 29 326 for "moving and other" violations.

KwaZulu-Natal transport department spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said there were plans to collect on the unpaid tickets during the forthcoming holiday.

"We will be focusing on this in roadblocks and those with outstanding fines will be made to pay."
