If it is to be believed, the much awaited (well not by everyone) AARTO system will be implemented next year while the demerit point (part of AARTO) will be announced early next year. With South African roads being the most dangerous in the world, we certainly need this demerit point. However, this can only be of use if South Africans start reporting police officers who bribes and vice versa. Also, our licensing departments need to get rid of its inefficiencies so that we don't end up with more people queuing to obtain licenses.
