The Somtseu Road Municipal Court opened in 2008 deals with mainly bylaws.
 
There was a need to open the court as the Durban Magistrates Court did not solely focus on bylaw related issues. It is a one stop shop tailor made to suit the needs of road users and the eThekwini Muicipality population.
 
It plays a major role in fast tracking road traffic issues.
 
Services include:
  • An individual can ascertain their traffic fine status.
  • Cashiers are available to collect payments for traffic fines and Bylaw related infringements
  • A prosecutor is available to attend representations from offenders
  • Prosecution of bylaws infringements and road traffic violations
 
These include:
1. Town Planning Matters
2. Environmental issues
3. Business licence cases
