Poland to arm police with credit card terminals

A bill to give police credit card terminals will be adopted at an upcoming Cabinet meeting, Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak has said. Błaszczak said on-the-spot credit card payment of fines will make police work easier.

“Such a solution is absolutely justified,” Błaszczak said, noting that it was sometimes problematic for foreigners to pay for their traffic infringements.

Under current laws, locals are given tickets to pay within a set period, but non-Polish nationals are required to pay in cash, on the spot.

Police chief Jarosław Szymczyk said traffic police would be the first to be fitted out with terminals and added he hoped the system would be implemented country-wide by the year’s end.
