  • Bad news for motorists

    Bad news for motorists: Biggest petrol, diesel price hike ‘in SA’s history’ “Mid-month unaudited data from the Central Energy Fund (CEF) is predicting the biggest fuel price hike in South Africa’s history by some margin,” reports the Automobile Association (AA) which has monitored the fuel price data from 1 September to date. The AA said: “A spike in international oil prices and a huge swing in the Rand/US dollar exchange rate have combined to predict a knockout blow at the pumps at the end of September. “Based on the current data, petrol users will be paying R1.12 more per litre.” The AA says diesel users who will be hit hardest, with a possible price hike of R1.38 per litre, pushing diesel to within a whisker of R16 per litre. The AA said: “To put this in perspective, should this increase materialise, it will push the price of 93 unleaded octane fuel inland close to R17 a litre, off a January price of R14.20 – a total increase of around 20%, year-to-date.” The Association also points out that a massive hike in the diesel price will be especially catastrophic for the agricultural sector which is already reeling from the prolonged drought. It says that extreme fuel price hikes could push marginal businesses, including farms, to a financial breaking point, and have a massive negative impact of consumer pricing. “While we earnestly hope the picture improves before month end, we once again call on the government to urgently address the policy and structural issues which have put fuel users in the front line of the Rand’s weakness,” the AA concludes. How will you survive this massive fuel hike? How has it affected your monthly budget? Let us know in the comments below.

  • Know your rights at a roadblock

    With the holiday season upon us, so the police presence on the roads will increase. Know your rights if and when you are stopped either in a roadblock or by a police officer. To start off we would like to say thanks to Anthony Whatmore for this great article and information. Below are some articles giving advice on what to do when being pulled over. Understand that these articles are guides and do not replace the advice of your lawyer. Most drivers are uncertain of what their rights are when stopped at roadblocks or confronted with suspicious police behaviour. Be aware of these points when confronted by real or alleged police officers: Note that under South African Law uniformed South African Police Service members (SAPS) have the same powers as uniformed traffic officers (JMPD) or other Metropolitan police forces.* *The word police used in the body of this document refers to both of the above. Roadblocks If stopped at a roadblock you have the right to: • Ask for the person’s police certificate of appointment which includes his picture, name, rank, force number and where stationed: Section 334 (2) (a) of the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977 • If these details are not given, you can ask to see the roadblock commander or most senior officer on the scene • If you have any doubt about the authenticity of the roadblock, you can ask to be taken to the closest police station • If the roadblock is legal, you have the right to ask what its purpose is. Even so, the person is not compelled to tell you if the reason is classified. The number of vehicles being stopped may indicate the status of the roadblock • You have the right to be treated with respect at all times and have the further right to get the details of any officer who has treated you unjustly • You must co-operate with all reasonable instructions, but you can question your position should you feel that a violation of your constitutional rights or your rights under the Criminal Procedure Act, 51 of 1977 is occurring • You must at all times treat any officer with respect and the dignity attached to his rank and office, although you may be firm in upholding your legal rights • You must identify yourself as the driver of the vehicle and supply proof of your driving license.
