City of Cape Town bosses are worried the implementation of the AARTO system during the World Cup will cripple local law enforcement services.
The controversial Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offenses Act is expected to come into effect on the 1st of July.
The City plans to seek an urgent interdict to prevent the implementation of the act.
Mayco Member for Safety and Security JP Smith says if the act is implemented, it will severely affect the way traffic officials do their jobs.
“The process at which we are currently doing our enforcement and giving people fines falls away and we’re not implementing AARTO; we’re effectively become unable to do traffic road enforcement.”
