Dear Start My Car,
It’s not just us. Everyone, it seems is moving in the digital direction. Have a look at the Wheels24 article below. It seems that South Africans are now able to report minor accidents and even get case numbers on line. This is real progress.
We too are making progress and are working every day to make our environment increasingly efficient and user friendly. You may notice that we have made some changes to this newsletter and have added a section called “What’s that noise?” The idea is to help any motorist, no matter how knowledgeable, to identify a range of sounds their vehicle may make, and what mechanical problem it may be indicative of.More importantly we are working to make sure to include as many deals as possible.Let us know if there is something that we are not offering so that we can make sure to do so.
Mostly, drive safe.
Motorists can now report an accident and obtain a case number via the National Traffic Information System (NATIS) website, removing the schlep of having to go to a police station.
However, there are a few stipulations, with only minor crashes can be reported and must be done within 24 hours or the next working day. Uploading a crash report is legally binding, according to the NATIS site.The user will be provided with an automated crash report number that can be used for insurance purposes. There is no charge for the service.
Here's a handy list of the process:
- This submission of a crash report will be legally binding.
- All crashes must be reported within 24 hours or the next working day.
(Non-Working days Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays)
- For insurance claims the motorisit will be provided with an automatically generated Crash Report
- Only minor damage accidents can be reported.
- Crashes which include a person or persons being injured, killed or involved in a hit and run
accident/crash must be reported immediately to the nearest municipal/metro police, traffic
department office or South African Police Service (SAPS) station.
- All crashes involving five or more vehicles must be reported at your nearest South African Police
- The information submitted by you can be made available to your insurance service provider.
- The reporting of the crash service is free. RTMC reserves the right to charge entities or persons to
access the data at a later stage.
