Criminal Procedure Act

In jurisdictions where the provisions of the AARTO Act do not apply, the Criminal Procedure Act, 1977 (Act 51 of 1977) is used to prosecute road traffic infringements and offences. The Criminal Procedure Act is also used to prosecute serious road traffic offences which are scheduled as “offences” in Schedule 3 of the AARTO Act.
