2. Traffic Fines

No one likes to pay traffic fines, and that is just a fact! As a general rule we at Cash Car Rentalsuggest and strongly recommend that at all times you stick to the rule of the Road.


  • 1-75km/h - 0 demerit points and R250
  • 76-80km/h - 1 demerit point and R500
  • 81-85km/h - 2 demerit points and R750
  • 86-90km/h - 3 demerit points and R1 000
  • 91-95km/h - 4 demerit points and R1 250
  • 96-100km/h - 5 demerit points and R1 500
  • 100+km/h in a 60 zone - 6 demerit points, no option of admission-of-guilt fine.

The same scale applies to other speed zones, starting with R250 for 10-15km/h over the speed limit, with the admission-of-guilt limit set at 40km/h over the speed limit, faster than that and you must appear in court.
So what happens if you get a traffic fine?
The answer is simple, as the renter of the vehicle you are liable for payment of all traffic fines. We at Cash Car Rental charge a handling fee of R100 for traffic fines under R300 and a handling fee of R190 for fines over R300 and this will be charged to you directly.

Consider sharing with a colleague when you are travelling to the same region and attending the same events. This will reduce the overall cost to company.
Depending on your business or the meetings you need to attend, you could consider using a Point-2-Point transfer instead of car rental. This will allow you to sit back, make calls, check your email or rehearse your presentation before your next appointment. And you won't need to worry about getting lost or searching for parking.
