Cape Town traffic fine roadshow back by popular demand – Dates and details

Cape Town is relaunching its traffic fine roadshow (TFR) just ahead of the Easter Weekend to afford motorists the opportunity to clear any outstanding fines or warrants on their name.

Usually an annual exercise, the TFR has been brought back to the public around four months after the previous one took place as it has “become incredibly popular” with the city’s residents, said Cape Town.

During the last roadshow over 2,000 motorists took the chance to scrub their record, resulting in the city finalising 16,923 fines and 5,150 warrants to the tune of R4.6 million.

This month, the roadshow is returning to the Cape Town Civic Centre for three days – from Monday, 25 March until Wednesday, 27 March.

The event starts at 08h30 sharp every morning with operating hours to be amended depending on operational requirements.

The first 350 people in the TFR queue will be assisted, and those still in line after this will receive a ticket to return the following day and will be allowed to move to the front of the queue upon presenting their ticket.

TFR services

The TFR offers citizens of Cape Town the following services:

  • Paying outstanding fines
  • All fine-related enquiries for vehicles registered in their name
  • Applying for a reduction in traffic fines issued within the City of Cape Town’s municipal boundaries
  • Enquiring about warrants and/or summons issued in their name and finalising these
  • Removing administration marks against their name on the Natis system

Attendees are required to have one of four documents on them in order to be assisted, comprising a South African Identity Document (ID), South African Driving Licence, South African Passport, or Traffic Register Certificate.

Should you not be able to attend the roadshow in person, you can send someone on your behalf, provided that the representative is able to produce their own Identity Document, a copy of the ID of the person who sent them, as well as an affidavit giving them permission to act on the other person’s behalf.

“We have been meeting the motoring public halfway, with very positive results and so I encourage those with outstanding fines and warrants to exploit this latest opportunity,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, Alderman JP Smith.

“It’s a good faith gesture as we head into the busy Easter weekend, and a reminder that there will be increased roadblocks and operations to trace scofflaws.”
