Nov 22, 2010 Important information - License Suspension - Proclamation in the government gazette. Those that have attended our AARTO seminars are aware that since June 2009 SASM has highlighted that a possible amendment to the National road Traffic Act was in the making, whereby Magistrates would be 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 magistrate where necessary can flex their muscles and now suspend your license. The simple principle now applies do not speed under any circumstances. The risk is great, the outcome is disastrous. National Road Traffic Amendment Act 64 of 2008 Amendment of section 35 of Act 93 of 1996 12. Section 35 of the principal Act is hereby amended— (a) by the insertion in subsection (1) after paragraph (a) of the following paragraph: ‘‘(aA) section 59(4), in the case of a conviction for an offence, where— (i) a speed in excess of 30 kilometres per hour over the prescribed general speed limit in an urban area was recorded; or (ii) a speed in excess of 40 kilometres per hour over the prescribed general speed limit outside an urban area or on a freeway was recorded; National Road Traffic Act Amendment - Commencement - 20/11/2010 - Government Gazette Proclamation of the above. by the President of the Republic of South Africa - No. 60, 2010 COMMENCEMENT OF THE NATIONAL ROAD TRAFFIC AMENDMENT ACT, 2008 (ACT NO.64 OF 2008) In terms of section 28 of the National Road Traffic Amendment Act, 2008 (Act No. 64 of 2008), I hereby fix 20 November 2010 as the date on which the said Act shall come into operation.
