New Coronavirus Law Implemented

It has been reported in the first week of the coronavirus ’lockdown’ that a total of 25 fixed penalty notices have been issued by police in Scotland. It has now been made a criminal offence to be out without reasonable excuse. The fines start at £30 but double if they are not paid within the 28-day timeframe. The Deputy Chief constable for Scotland has stated that they will engage with the public but made it clear that “if there are repeated instances then the penalties rise very quickly, and we’ll see if that has an impact.” These restrictions on the public will have to reviewed every 21 days.
