Local industry leader global innovator

Since its inception in 1994, Fines SA (then Mekaish Traffic Fine Management) has been focussed on making the lives of South African drivers easier.

From its initial product offer of personalised number plates and queuing services, the company has organically expanded over the years to pioneer seamless online traffic fine payment solutions.

Innovation in a fragmented market

Today, Fines SA is the undisputed leader in traffic fine administration. To get the company to where it is, owner and founder Barry Berman and his team took inspiration from international models; adapting them to the local market by developing proprietary software.

Locally, fines are administered by individual municipalities. Because of the fragmented nature of the system, drivers are often unaware that they have outstanding fines and even warrants of arrest linked to their ID number. This could result in massive fines, arrest, even imprisonment.

Most comprehensive database in South Africa

Fines SA has solved this problem by creating the most convenient, comprehensive platform on which to check and pay traffic fines. While not the only company in the country to do so, Fines SA is the most comprehensive by far - consolidating fines from more than 250 municipalities into one, easy-to-navigate platform. Competitors often claim nation-wide representation, but only collate fines from maximum 50 municipalities.

Fines SA also provides a comprehensive national report, free of charge, to any South African registered on its system.

No convenience fee and a 50% discount

Being so widely representative is not all that sets the company apart. For the consumer, the biggest benefit is probably the substantial discounts of up to 50%. Clients also don't pay the 'convenience fees' and other costs billed by competitors.

The reason for the large discounts is because we pay traffic fines over in bulk to more than 250 municipalities. So the more we pay, the more YOU save.

Revolutionary payment options

Fines SA is always on the lookout to make your life easier, more efficient and less stressful. As a result, we now offer 10 ways to pay. Just click on the various payment links on your quote, statement and sms to pay for example through EFT, Snapscan, PayFast or Zapper. To find out more, check out the dedicated newsletter explaining our the different options.
