Alta Swanepoel of Alta Swanepoel & Associates will be unpacking an array of information pertaining to transport legislation at the upcoming round of national workshops.

The annual Road Traffic and Transport Legislation Workshop run by transport legislation guru Alta Swanepoel is once again being held this year with workshops being run in all the major centres. The 2023 events mark the 24th staging of these workshops which have proved invaluable in the past in keeping transporters and others up to date with the latest – and pending – legislation.

Apart from the main topics listed further below, good news from Swanepoel is that due to the many enquiries received by her office from companies, traffic officers and industry representatives on everyday road traffic issues, an added value component of this year’s workshops is that an easy reference hand-out has been compiled on the following issues:

  • Driving licences, professional driving permits, foreign drivers and other matters relating to drivers.
  • Registration and licensing of vehicles, 21-day grace periods for licensing, temporary permits, homologation of vehicles, alterations, colour changes, and modifications to vehicles.
  • Specific requirements on roadworthiness, information plates, braking requirements, fire extinguishers and LED/illegal lamps.
  • Overload control, requirements for permissible masses, consignor and consignee responsibilities and calculations for legal loads.
  • Requirements for taxis, staff vehicles, UBER services, etc.

Lively debate around these issues is expected and will give transport operators, traffic officials and others the chance to clear up what are often confused interpretations of legislation which result in, for example, erroneous fines being issued. There’s an old saying that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Well, now the ignorance levels can be shelved and clarity introduced. Knowledge is power Yeah! This aside, the main presentation topics will be as follows:
