North Gauteng High Court has ruled that fines under the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences (Aarto) Act must be scrapped if authorities did not follow the law when sending them out.
The Court ruled that traffic fines where officials did not comply with the Aaarto Act are invalid.
Justice Project chairman, Howard Dembovsky, explains that the Aarto Act says infringement notices and under documents issued under the Act must be served via registered mail.
This ruling means that millions of traffic fines issued to motorists in Johannesburg and Pretoria since 2008 will be scrapped.
