The National Democratic Movement (NDM) has described the traffic ticket amnesty as an extortion racket.

The NDM's comments come amid complaints from several motorists that the traffic ticket database incorrectly indicates that they have not paid their fines.
Many people have gone ahead to pay their fines again under the ticket amnesty.
According to the NDM, the latest drive shows that the government was desperately seeking money at all cost while using a willing Police Force to issue threats of arrest.
The NDM is appealing to motorists who have already paid for the traffic tickets to desist from paying a second time for the same ticket.
NDM chairman Peter Townsend is also urging motorists to take legal action against the relevant authorities.
The Movement further calls for the government to scrap the traffic ticket amnesty and refund all double payments made by motorists.
