The Road Traffic Infringement Agency (RTIA) acts an independent adjudicator of traffic fines and infringements which have been issued under the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offenses (AARTO) Act. The Objectives of the agency include discouraging the contravention of road traffic laws and to support the adjudication of infringements. The RTIA also works to reward compliant road users, encourage reasonable, lawful and fair administrative adjudication; and encourage effective suspension and cancellation of operator cards and driving licenses.
The agency performs its functions by receiving notices from any issuing authority if an infringer has failed to comply with an infringement notice, and issuing a courtesy letter to the infringer. When an infringer has failed to comply with the requirements of the infringement notice, or has failed to appear in court, the RTIA issues an enforcement order. Upon failure to comply with the enforcement order, a warrant is issued for the infringer. Lastly, the RTIA is responsible for revoking an enforcement order and updating the national contraventions register in the prescribed manner.
