Road Accident Benefit Scheme doomed to fail

PRETORIA NEWS / 4 DECEMBER 2018, 2:30PM / GERT NEL Over the past few weeks, the portfolio committee on transport held public consultations to gather comments on the proposed new Road Accident Benefit Scheme (Rabs) Bill. A common theme echoed in all the presentations, being that the bill, in its current form, will fail constitutional muster and that taxpayers will simply not be able to afford a dual system, essentially adding the financial demands of the new proposed Rabs on top of the already struggling Road Accident Fund (RAF).

Cape Argus 3 Sep 2018 WITH GEORGINA CROUTH WRITE TO GEORGINA AT CONSUMER@INL.CO.ZA TWITTER @ASKGEORGIE Despite initial objections to the new RABS, National Treasury has thrown its weight behind the proposed scheme – saying it will find the money, which is likely to mean a hike in the fuel levy and a heavy reliance on public healthcare.

Both parties are pushing for the proposed bill to be finalised by the end of October. Over the past few weeks the committee held public consultations in the nine provinces to gather comments on the proposed new bill. This followed weeks of submissions that were made to the department in Parliament by various stakeholders, including the law societies. Pretoria-based Road Accident Fund (RAF) expert and lawyer Gert Nel said a common theme echoed in all the presentations was that the bill in its present form would fail constitutional muster. “The South African taxpayer will simply not be able to afford a dual system, essentially adding the financial
