11:42 am on 29 September 2011

Reports from Fiji say hundreds of people will be reimbursed after being fined too much for jaywalking.

Fijivillage reports that in Suva, Lautoka and Labasa, more than 300 people have been fined 40 Fiji dollars each for committing the offence.

However, the Land Transport Authority Act has a ceiling of a ten-dollar fine.

The Transport Ministry says offenders, who were overcharged, can get a 30-dollar refund.
