Cape Town - With the earlier taxi strike in August and a potential fuel price hike to hit motorists, we look at all things related to traffic laws this week.

Petrol price hike

Stronger international fuel prices and a gradually weakening Rand are signalling a hefty jump in the price of all fuel types at the end of August, reports the Automobile Association, commenting on unaudited mid-month fuel price data released by the Central Energy Fund (CEF).

The Automobile Association says: 'The mid-month fuel outlook prediction is that petrol is expected to climb by a hefty 63 cents a litre and diesel by 57 cents.


We also covered the recent taxi strike, as we gathered comments from the Justice Project South Africa and Law For All.

JPSA said: 'It is extraordinary that it is being stated that a 60% discount has been offered,' following the fine rediction saga.

With that in mind, here is the traffic law wrap of the week:

1. 'Hefty' fuel price hike for South Africa - AA

2. #TaxiStrike: Scrapping mini-bus drivers' traffic fines 'sets a bad precedent'

3. 'I am officially in trouble' Readers respond to potential SA fuel price hike

4. #TaxiStrike: Joburg mini-bus drivers demand 'scrapping 100% of fines'

5. 'Action needed to deal with 'Blue-light brigade' drivers' - AA

6. 'Pretoria minibus taxi protest action is misguided' - Justice Project South Africa
