Justice Project South Africa

Welcome to Justice Project South Africa (JPSA for short).

Justice Project South Africa is a nongovernmental, non-profit organisation dedicated to the improvement of road traffic law and its enforcement, as well as to road safety in South Africa. When it comes to road traffic law, JPSA is arguably the most active and vocal “motorists’ rights” organisation in South Africa, seeking to both, educate its members (and the public in general), as well as to help them to enforce their rights and meet their obligations and responsibilities.

Our members enjoy many benefits, including representation in matters pertaining to traffic law and its enforcement. While our membership has been growing steadily over the years, it still has a long way to go and we would like to appeal to you to become a member.

It is essential that you understand what it is that we do, why we do it and why we believe that it is essential that we continue to do it. For this reason, we urge you to refer to our “about” page for more information. In short however, JPSA focuses purely on road traffic law legislative matters, enforcement and the prevention and combating of abuses thereof.
