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

We are currently busy upgrading our website to a content management system and a platform which is browser friendly on all platforms (computer, mobile phone, etc.). We ask you to please bear with us while we do so. As a result of this upgrade, some of the contents listed on search engines may be unavailable or may have been migrated to pages which have different names. If you have been referred to our website by a search engine or any other facility or person and can’t find the particular information you were looking for, please use our search facility (top right) and if that doesn’t yield the results you are looking for, contact us so we may assist you.

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.

It is becoming increasingly common for people wishing to renew their licence disc, driving licence or professional driving permit to be told that there is a warrant for their arrest or that they must pay all of their outstanding traffic fines before they can do so. This deliberately misleading information causes panic and does not help anyone. It creates further animosity between motorists and authorities, as well as encouraging the unlawful operation of motor vehicles – all because traffic and licensing authorities think it’s clever to lie to people. Read our free public advisory on this here.

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.
