Summary

Traffic officers and departments refer to a standardised table of speeding fines, determined by a magistrate, when deciding how much a speeding fine should be.

Speeding Fines for Light Motor Vehicles

Traffic officers and departments refer to a set table of speeding fines when deciding how much a speeding fine should be.

These fines are set by magistrate's order and cannot be changed without a magistrate's approval. They are only valid in the Cape Town Metropole and the Western Cape.

There are different fines for light motor vehicles, such as a normal family car, and heavy vehicles such as trucks.

Admission of Guilt Fines

A speeding fine is, in effect, an admission of guilt. Motorists who exceed the maximum speed for admission-of-guilt fines, are not given the option to pay an admission-of-guilt fine. They are arrested and brought before a magistrate. If found guilty, they may face up to five years in prison or a R25 000 fine.
