Announcements by the National Department of Transport that a permanent CEO for the RTMC will be made shortly were welcomed by JPSA. The RTMC has been operating without a board and only an acting CEO for almost 2 years now and under his tenure, there has been no improvement in the operations of the RTMC.

News 24 | 2011

After Transport Minister S'bu Ndebele announced that it was being considered to lower the speed limit applicable to national freeways from 120km/h to 100km/h, Howard Dembovsky came forward stating that speed in itself was rarely the cause of crashes. He pointed out that speed does have an influence on the severity of crashes however.

He also pointed out that speed limits applicable to public transport vehicles are already 100km/h and heavy vehicles 80km/h and these limits are very rearely enforced.

News 24 | 2011

Deputy Chief of the Tshwane Metropolitan Police Department (TMPD) Ndumiso Jaca has been using counterfiet number plates "BALTY GP" on two distinctly different motor vehicles for some time now. The one is a BMW Z4 motor car and the other is a Harley Davdison motorcycle. At the time of going to press, the BMW was not even roadworthied, registered or licensed.

Criminal charges, including violation of the National Road Traffic Act and fraud have been laid against Jaca by Howard Dembovsky and the ICD is dealing with the matter.

Fin 24 | 2011

The JMPD is and has been since 1 June 2010, violating Section 30(1) of the AARTO Amendment Act which holds that infringement notices posted to alleged infringers MUST be sent by registered mail. The JMPD uses ordinary mail, which not only stalls the AARTO process before it can begin, but also invalidates each and every infringement notice issued in this manner.
