The City of Johannesburg hasn’t renewed contracts with any electronic enforcement of speed limit service providers, Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) spokesperson Wayne Minnaar has confirmed.
These contracts were terminated at the end of February.
This means Joburg residents won’t get speeding tickets in the post anymore, but will instead be stopped and issued with fines.
Minnaar says six to nine manual cameras are in operation.

The focus is now on visible policing, to have officers out on the road, actually physically stopping motorists if they are going above the speed limit and then giving a traffic fine.— Wayne Minnaar, JMPD spokesperson
We don’t want to have officers behind bushes.— Wayne Minnaar, JMPD spokesperson
