The eThekwini Municipality’s Durban Metro Police encourages Durban motorists to take advantage of the 50% Traffic Fines Amnesty, starting from 01/12/12 until the implementation of the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Fines Act (AARTO) , and pay their outstanding traffic fines. The implementation of AARTO is yet to be announced by the National Department of Transport. The amnesty was approved by the EXCO Committee on Tuesday, 20/11/12.
Individuals can pay a few fines at a time which means that they do not have to pay all of their fines at once. However, no part payments will be allowed for any outstanding fines. All individuals who pay their outstanding traffic fines during this period will receive a 50% incentive, which means that they will only pay half the amount of their fines.
The incentive will end when AARTO is implemented to ensure that the Municipality does not have to consider new incentives after the conclusion of six months, as in previous years. The existing incentive will continue until the incentive payment system under the AARTO Act kicks in.
