Draft regulations were published in terms of the South African National Roads Agency and National Roads Act, 1998 in Gazette 35182 of 27 March 2012.
The draft regulations are published for comment and may be submitted before 16 April 2012.
The provisions in the draft regulations basically copy the provisions that are already contained in the National Road Traffic Act, 1996 pertaining to the powers of traffic officers and the presumption of use of a motor vehicle by the owner. Section 17(5) of the AARTO Act is also copied that creates an offence if an owner does not collect details on the driver of the vehicle. There are also powers for authorised employees relating to toll road use.
