Comments on the AARTO Amendment Bill close on 31 August 2016. If you are thinking about commenting but aren't quite sure how to, please see our layman's guide and Unpacking the AARTO Amendment Bill, 2015 here.
It's a little known fact that the vast majority of the work JPSA does and the assistance it gives is provided at no cost to the person to whom it's provided. If we wanted to make a business of assisting our fellow South Africans, we would never have registered as a non-profit company to start with.
Unfortunately, there is a general assumption that because an organisation is a non-profit comany, it doesn't have expenses and gets preferential treatment when it does incur expenses. Nothing could be further from the truth. To donate to JPSA, click here.
Justice Project South Africa is a non-profit company, registered in terms of the Companies Act, 2008 and is primarily involved in the prevention and addressing of corruption and power abuse in law enforcement as well as in the education of the public in a wide range road safety issues. We receive no funding from government for our road safety initiatives and any funding that we generate ourselves is used to further our aims and objectives.
Although we have only been around since mid 2008 and in the public eye since 2009, JPSA has established a prominent foothold and reputation in protecting and fighting for the rights of motorists and is widely recognised as the only "motorists' rights" organisation that has both, the guts and capacity to represent the motoring public in addressing these issues.
In March 2013, JPSA was invited by the Chief of the Cape Town Traffic Services, Heathcliff Thomas, as well as Alderman JP Smith to observe the operations of their department. Have a look at what transpired here.
Never before in the history of South Africa has any organisation dared challenge the overtly unlawful actions of traffic law enforcement authorities and challenge the way in which road traffic legislation is drafted, enacted and enforced in a highly prejudicial manner. But not only do we challenge things that are wrong, but we support initiatives that are right and even present many of our own ideas and initiatives that do make a difference in bringing safer roads and more effective policing to our roads.

JPSA revamps and re-opens membership to the public
A while ago, JPSA closed membership applications to members of the public to revamp its membership categories to better suit what it has to offer the public. We are now pleased to announce that this process is complete and we are geared up to take new members on board.
Our new membership categories carry with them a host of benefits to suit the individual requirements of each and every person and entity that we serve.

JPSA launches its Priority Assist service
For way too long now, motorists have found themselves the targets of unscrupulous, corrupt and downright abusive law enforcement officials and had fear struck into their hearts when they encounter such criminals posing as law enforcement officers.
Unlawful arrest, demanding bribes, extortion and a the host of other unlawful activities perpetrated by these officials is not acceptable and has to be tackled and whilst JPSA has been doing so on an ad-hock basis since 2008, we have now decided to formalise this into a full-blown service to which anyone with a driving licence can subscribe.

JPSA lodges complaint with the Public Protector
Following over 12 months of unlawful application of the AARTO Act, and numerous and repeated engagements with those responsible JPSA has lodged an official complaint with the Public Protector on this matter.
The JMPD's wanton lawlessness in this matter is not acceptable and cannot and will not be tolerated.
