  • Minister welcomes President's signing of AARTO Bill

    Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula has welcomed President Cyril
    Ramaphosa’s signing of the Administrative Adjudication of the Road
    Traffic Offences (AARTO) Amendment Bill into law.

    The AARTO Act brings with it new provisions of the road traffic law,
    such as the addition of the electronic serving of infringement
    documents, setting up of the points demerit system and creation of
    rehabilitation centres for habitual infringers.

    “During the Transport Department’s Budget Vote Speech, this
    administration made a promise to road users, that in the spirit of
    Khawuleza, we will expedite service delivery and deal decisively with
    lawlessness on the roads, in a bid to drastically reduce road
    fatalities. The signing into law of the AARTO Amendment Bill has brought
    that promise to fruition”, said Minister Mbalula.

    The Minister will be holding a press briefing tomorrow, to discuss the
    AARTO Act and the implementation thereof.

    Members of the media are invited to attend the briefing. Details are as
    follows:

    Date: 18 August 2019
