National Traffic Anti Corruption Unit
The RTMC established the National Traffic Anti Corruption Unit in November 2012 as a response to the challenge of ethical conduct that is facing the traffic fraternity. The fraternity has been synonymous with corruption and the culture of corrupt practises between the Officers and the South African public is deep rooted. This is a matter of strategic importance; there is a need to reposition the sector in line with safety and security where all South Africans are protected.
The mandate of the unit is to address fraud and corruption within all spheres of the traffic fraternity in ensuring that all drivers, vehicles and road users in general entering the country’s roads are safe. The Unit will investigate cases of alleged corruption within the environment and will also cooperate with other law enforcement agencies. The Unit will augment its capacity by co-opting from other investigative agencies and establishing stakeholder relations and structures that will support its coordination activities.
