AARTO Amendment Act, on which the proposed traffic demerit system was to be based, declared unconstitutional by High Court

OUTA CEO Wayne Duvenhage stated “For several years now we’ve tried to engage with the authorities and making sure that the various amendments and changes are constitutional, practical and workable but true to form they have ignored our input and not participated meaningfully with civil society, which left us no alternative but to go to court and have it stopped in its tracks. We’re very pleased with the judge’s ruling. It now sends government back to the drawing board on what has become quite a mess.”
