No effort to enforce laws

Earlier in 2013 Wheels24 we reported that Gauteng drivers may as well trash their traffic offence notices as the City of Johannesburg has ditched all court summons issued since December 22 2012.

The Road Traffic Infringement Agency has suspended the posting of all courtesy letters requesting for payment of traffic violations.


Reader JOHANN OLIVIER says traffic officials are wasting their time:

“If traffic officers had a visible presence discipline would come back to the roads.

"Officers would issue tickets and get road users to sign for their tickets and tell them of their offence, as it used to be in the past. At the moment officials waste time and our money by sitting in the shade and hiding behind worthless cameras.

"There is no discipline.

"There isn’t a serious effort to enforce laws and therefore road deaths will keep on rising. Offences aren't seen as offences any more.”
