South Africa - From May 11 2017, it will become illegal to transport school children for reward (i.e paying a driver) in the goods compartment of a bakkie.

Many organisations, including the Department of Transport have lauded this as being a giant stride in the right direction for road safety. 

Law for All  said: "It is no secret that the overfilling of taxis and bakkies has resulted in many oung, innocent children losing their lives on their way to school.

"While there are many contributing factors to this, government aims to put a stop to the unnecessary deaths of pupils with amendments to laws relating to scholar transport."
