The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) commenced its operations in April 2005 with the main purpose to pool powers and resources to eliminate the fragmentation of responsibilities for all aspects of road traffic management across the various levels of government in South Africa, and to bring a professional approach and improved confidence into the entire system.
The RTMC was established in terms of Section 3 of the Road Traffic Management Corporation Act, No. 20 of 1999, for co-operative and coordinated strategic planning, regulation, facilitation and law enforcement in respect of road traffic matters by the national, provincial and local spheres of government.
At the RTMC we face a tough challenge to fight lawlessness on our roads, to improve the overall safety of our road users and to encourage responsible road usage behavior.
The RTMC South Africa was designed to carry out the following:
To establish the RTMC as a partnership between national, provincial and local sphere of government
To enhance the overall quality of road traffic services provision, and in particular ensure safety, security, order, discipline and mobility on the roads
To protect road infrastructure and the environment through the adoption and implementation of innovative technology
To phase out, where appropriate, public finding and phase in private sector investment in road traffic matters on a competitive basis
To introduce commercial management principles to inform and guide road traffic governance and decision making in the interest of enhanced service provision
To optimise the utilisation of public funds
To regulate, strengthen and monitor inter-governmental contact and co-operation in road traffic matters
To improve the exchange and dissemination of information and road traffic matters
To stimulate research in road traffic matters and effectively utilise the resources of existing institutes and research bodies
To develop human resources in the public and private sectors that are involved in road traffic matters
