Traffic infringements in KZN are not being captured by the province’s Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) due to the failure by traffic officers to upload data.

This is according to the auditor-general (AG), who found the recent migration by the RTI to a new system of capturing infringements had resulted in several transgressions not being captured.

In a report tabled before the provincial legislature’s standing committee on public accounts (Scopa), the AG found that the failure by the KZN Transport Department to ensure that all traffic transgressions were recorded had resulted in the department understating its revenue.
