ATTENTION: ALL LINE MANAGERS AND DRIVERS
Speeding Violations – Driving License Suspension
Drivers and Line Managers must please take note of the latest amendment to the National
road Traffic Act which became effective on 20th November 2010, to kerb the lawlessness and
limit the carnage on our roads. Magistrates have been granted extra power to suspend driving
licences in instances where motorists exceed 30km/h above the speed limit in urban areas
(eg: 90+ km/h in a 60 km/h zone) and 40km/h above the speed limit outside an urban area.
This is now law as from 20/11/2010 and a magistrate may where considered necessary flex
their muscles and suspend your licence. The simple principle now applies do not speed under
any circumstances. The risk is great, the outcome could be disastrous.
Line Management must please bring this serious matter to the attention of all COCT
employees that depend on their driving licenses for their livelihood and impress upon them
the consequences of non compliance. Please take appropriate action to correct the behaviour
of all serious and repeat traffic offenders and.
Driving Licence Suspension now law.
