Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) pays cost of court case just before attachment order is executed

 This week the Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) hastily paid an amount of approximately R1,7 million to prevent a court order to have its assets seized from being executed, says Adv Anton Alberts, chairperson of the FF Plus.

Adv Alberts says that he is in possession of two documents that indicate that the North Gauteng High Court (Pretoria) issued two attachment orders against the RTIA on the 21st of August this year.

It was issued for the costs incurred with the case, and the subsequent appeal, between RTIA and the applicants Fines4U and Audi Centre.

Earlier this year, Fines4U won a watershed case against AARTO in the High Court. In accordance with the ruling, AARTO had to write off millions of rands in illegal traffic fines.

According to Adv Alberts, the fact that RTIA neglected to comply with the initial order as to costs and necessitated the court to issue attachment orders is indicative of RTIA’s disregard for legal processes. He adds that RTIA’s behaviour resulted in the unnecessary squandering of tax money.
