Road transportation is a critical element supporting and directly contributing to growth in any economy. Road accidents are, unfortunately, a negative consequence of this economic growth, affecting both economically active members of our society and other citizens.
Free markets, and in particular the private sector, do not fully address the impact of road accidents on society and the economy. The Road Accident Fund (RAF) provides a social security safety net to the country and economy by making available compulsory social insurance cover to all users of South African roads.
The RAF provides compulsory cover to all users of South African roads, citizens and foreigners, against injuries sustained or death arising from accidents involving motor vehicles within the borders of South Africa. This cover is in the form of indemnity insurance to persons who cause the accident, as well as personal injury and death insurance to victims of motor vehicle accidents and their families.
The scheme that makes it easier for road accident victims to claim.
