It’s 1 July, which means the controversial AARTO Act is officially in force. You will now get ‘demerit points’ on your licence if you break these rules.

Warning: Justice Project South Africa has warned vehicle owners to closely inspect their speed camera-based fines for accuracy.
“This does not bode well for a state-owned enterprise that the public will soon have to trust to handle billions of rands in traffic fine revenue,” says Justice Project South Africa (JPSA).
