John: Did you hear about the new law that was passed?

Nadia: No, what law?

John: It's a law about increasing fines for traffic violations.

Nadia: That's interesting. Do you think it will reduce the number of accidents?

John: I don't know, but I heard that some people are not happy about the new law.

Nadia: Why not?

John: They think the fines are too high and that the law is too strict.

Nadia: I see. I guess it's a matter of perspective.

John: What do you think about the law?

Nadia: I think it's a good idea if it helps make the roads safer.

John: But do you think it's fair to impose such high fines on people?

Nadia: It depends on the situation. If someone is breaking the law and endangering others, then I think it's justified.

John: I heard that the police are cracking down on speeding in particular.

Nadia: That's good to hear. Speeding is a major cause of accidents.

John: I think the government should invest in better public transportation instead of just enforcing traffic laws.

Nadia: That's a valid point, but I think it's important to have both.

John: What if someone gets fined unfairly? Is there any recourse?

Nadia: I'm not sure. We should look up the details of the law.

John: Thanks for discussing this with me.

Nadia: No problem. It's always good to talk about important issues.
