The administrative adjudication of road traffic offences (AARTO) bill; understanding its impact on the man on the street

Following the example of several European countries, the much talked about Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences (AARTO) Bill was signed into law in South Africa by President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier this month. Essentially, the AARTO Bill has become necessary to arrest repeat traffic offenders for offences such as drunk driving or speeding by acting as a deterrent and providing injunction.

Mr Fikile Mbalula, the Minister of Transport, told the Sunday Times that his department is looking to implement tough measures, and that it is only in South Africa that offending road users are allowed to become recurring lawbreakers who never see the inside of a jail. Offenders do not only endanger their own lives, but those of other road users too, and moreover, get away with their crimes by simply paying a fine.

Knowledge Creation through Academic Research

A wise person once said: “Research is creating new knowledge.” A statement that sums up rather nicely the fact that academic research is not the stereotypical domain of people in white lab coats or dusty academics hidden behind piles of old books.
