Frequently Asked Questions

Why does my traffic fine not give an amount?

Traffic fines with R0 amount or with the wording NAG – Means that there is No Admission of Guilt (NAG) and that      the driver of that vehicle needs to appear in court to get a set fine amount determined by court.

Can I dispute an old traffic fine that I only became aware of recently and never received via registered mail?

In terms of the Criminal Procedure Act (CPA) you can receive a fine that’s called a summons (Sec 56), one that is handwritten by a Traffic Officer/Police Officer/Metro Police Officer and one that was send to you by post, normally for speeding. These fines are issued in terms of the CPA and when they are issued, they issue them with a payment date and a court date. Fines issued in terms of the CPA gets withdrawn after a certain time frame. With the AARTO Act however, the fine will stay active on Natis (National Traffic Information System) till such time that it gets paid or redirected. Should there be no proof of receipt of the AARTO fine from RTIA’s (Road Traffic Infringement Agency) side within the said timelines this fine can be disputed.
