Lotriet, Prof A to ask the Minister of State Security

1. What are the details of the (a) number of accidents that vehicles owned by her department were involved (i) in each of the past three financial years and (ii) since 1 April 2018, (b) cost for repairs in each case and (c)(i) number of and (ii) reasons for vehicles being written off in each case; 2. Whether all vehicles owned by her department have tracking devices installed?


For the period commencing 2015/2016 to 2017/2018 financial year SSA has recorded forty-one (41) motor vehicle accidents of which nine (9) vehicles were found to be uneconomical to repair.

Repair costs were as follows:





Total Accidents




Total Written Off




Total Repair Costs

R758 934.31

R462 140.04

R11 100.00

Vehicles were written off when the value to repair exceeded the vehicle value. Hence, it did not make economic sense to repair them.

Currently, there is not tracking system installed in the official vehicles for SSA. Research with regard to systems is currently being conducted to find the most suitable system for the SSA.
