About the RTMC

 

  '

 Establishment of the RTMC

The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) was established in terms of Section 3 of the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) Act, No. 20 of 1999.

The overriding aim of the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) is to overcome the current fragmentation of traffic management functions across provincial and local jurisdictions, and to bring a new professional coherence and improved morale into the entire system.

The RTMC operates at arm’s length from the Department of Transport and entrenches an effective partnership between national, provincial and local spheres of government in the management of road traffic matters.

Recognizing the importance of the regulation of public transport and road traffic to the development, safety and quality of life of all South Africans, the purpose for which the RTMC was established is:

  • To enhance the overall quality of road traffic management and service provision;
  • To strengthen the cooperation and coordination between the national, provincial and local spheres of government in the management of road traffic;
  • To maximize the effectiveness of provincial and local government efforts, particularly in road traffic law enforcement;
  • To create business opportunities, particularly for the previously disadvantaged sectors, to supplement public sector capacity;
  • To guide and sustain the expansion of private sector investment in road traffic management.

 

Functional areas of the RTMC

The RTMC Act provides for ten (10) functional areas, as agreed to by the Shareholders Committee. These 10 functional areas or units are:

  • Training of traffic personnel;
  • Road traffic information;
  • Accident investigations and recording thereof;
  • Communication and education;
  • Infrastructure safety audits;
  • Road traffic law enforcement;
  • Vehicle registration and licensing;
  • Vehicle and roadworthiness testing;
  • Testing and licensing of drivers; and

  • Two representatives nominated by the national organisation recognised in terms of section 2(a) of the Organised Local Government Act, 1997 (Act No. 52 of 1997).

Role of the Shareholders Committee

The Shareholders Committee is a forum through which the national, provincial and local spheres of government co-operate with each other and with other persons or bodies concerned with road traffic matters. The Committee is responsible for directing and guiding the proper functioning of the Corporation in the public interest and for reflecting, in its decision-making procedures, the spirit of co-operation and mutual trust contemplated in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.
