He would get 6 for speeding. It's the same as what you would get for drunken driving. So he can do that again in the next year and still be allowed to drive. He would only get banned if he committed another offence on top of doing that twice.
Driving licence demerit system approved for South Africa

This is such a shytshow.You might very well be right - still waiting on my new drivers licence ... 4 months and counting. (Temp licence has also expired now)
Its mainly about streamlining revenue gathering. Can't have people snarling up the works. A lot of tickets are written off now because they're invalid.Can someone explain what that means in terms of ones ability to challenge the validity of a given ticket and what ones appeal options would be in future?
Traffic fines are already very high relative to incomes. Only the well off can run around breaking traffic laws without it hurting financially. You're simply proposing making it a bit more elitist.wont change anything
Unlicenced taxi driver will still drive
Change ALL traffic fines to 100 times their current values and quickly you will see some attitude adjustments on the road
Is reckless driving well defined? Otherwise it should be a matter for the court. Already traffic police can't manage to grasp laws on parking and vehicle license expiry dates, so not a good idea to let them adjudicate something that requires intelligence and judgement.Drunk driving should be 12 or more as should reckless driving - they should basically result in immediate suspension or at the very least put the driver on maximum points so a parking violation would result in them being suspended.
Is that for not having a license at all or not carrying it?PS: Note that the pregnant lady with babybrain only has to forget her handbag with drivers licence at home 3 times to lose her driver's licence.
Also, "Failing to yield to a pedestrian". Are they actually going to enforce this? And if so, how?
