SA gets tough on traffic crime

first_imgSouth Africa’s traffic officials will now enforce the points demerit system. Minister of Transport S’bu Ndebele illuminating the Torch of Light in Pretoria. Minister Ndebele with Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga. (Images: Bongani Nkosi) MEDIA CONTACTS • Logan Maistry Spokesperson Department of Transport +27 083 6444 050 [email protected] RELATED ARTICLES • Diski Striker spreads 2010 vibe • SA ready for Rea Vaya • Travelling by minibus taxi in SA • Sanral’s multibillion traffic plan • Smoother air traffic flow in 2010 • Police hard at work for a safer SABongani NkosiHabitually reckless drivers will soon be banned from South Africa’s roads in a bid to help reduce fatalities and promote responsible motoring.This was Minister of Transport S’bu Ndebele’s warning as he announced the driver’s licence demerit system at an event in Pretoria on 26 January. It will come into force on 1 April.Drivers will start on a clean slate with 12 points each year. All traffic offences – including speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, drunken driving or jumping a stop street – carry a penalty, and once caught for committing such an offence, a driver will have a set number of points knocked off his or her total.When a driver has lost all 12 points and another one his or her licence will be suspended for a minimum of three months. Losing a further two, in other words having 14 demerits, will lead to a six-month ban.When a driver’s licence is suspended for a third time, it will be cancelled.The system is aimed at encouraging people to respect the rules of the road at all times and therefore reduce accidents. It forms part of the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences (Aarto) Act, which was approved by Parliament in 1998.“Aarto is about changing the behaviour of South African drivers. Habitual offenders may even find themselves being deprived of the convenience of driving a car,” Ndebele said.“If you want to continue driving a car, you must behave responsibly and considerately. If you don’t, we will take away your driving licence.”Good driving rewardedThe system does not exempt offenders from having to pay fines and, in extreme cases, undergo arrest. For example, someone caught driving 115km/h in a 60km/h zone will be fined R1 250 (about US$165) and get four demerits. Those who drive more than 35km/h over the legal speed limit will be arrested immediately.Responsible drivers, however, will be rewarded. If someone keeps all 12 points during the year he or she will kick off the new year with an additional 12 points plus a bonus point, leading to a total of 25 points.The system has drastically reduced fatalities in countries such as Australia and England over the years, Ndebele noted. “If you go to Australia, if you go to England, [you will see] it has changed the behaviour of drivers. That’s what will happen in South Africa.”At the same event Ndebele announced that the country recorded a total of 1 582 road deaths in its nine provinces between 1 December and 11 January. These figures are noted and discussed annually in an ongoing effort to curb the number of fatalities, which always swell due to heavy traffic during the festive and summer holiday season.Reducing the burden on courtsAarto, which has been allocated R300-million ($39.5-million) to implement, will also help reduce the burden on South Africa’s courts as traffic offences will now be handled within the department under the stewardship of the Road Traffic Infringement Agency. Offenders, however, will still have the option of taking the matter to court to appeal against the rulings.Ndebele said court rolls across the country are currently clogged by traffic charges, and because these take so long to be heard, “the lawlessness on our roads is exacerbated further”.“The implementation of [Aarto] will relieve the burden from the court system and allow the courts to focus on more urgent matters,” Ndebele said. “It will also contribute to more effective and efficient finalisation of road traffic cases.”Taking dangerous drivers off the roads will also have a positive impact on South Africa’s economy as every year the country’s Road Accident Fund spends millions compensating people who have been involved in accidents, Ndebele pointed out.Helping youngsters get their licencesNdebele also announced that government will soon include road safety education in South Africa’s school curriculum. With the help of government, pupils in Grade 11 will be able to get their learner licences and by the time they complete matric they will have their full driver’s licenses.“We will mobilise our learners to come forward for this exciting programme,” said Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga. “As we teach them to respect the rules of the road they will become responsible drivers.”Promise of safe roads during the World CupNdebele has promised 2010 Fifa World Cup visitors to South Africa that they will be safe on the country’s roads. During all major sporting events that South Africa has hosted – including the 1995 Rugby World Cup and last year’s Fifa Confederations Cup and Indian Premier League – only one fatal accident involving a visitor was reported, the minister said.“South Africa has never had as many visitors and road users as we will experience during the 2010 Fifa World Cup. Our obligation is to ensure that all those who use our roads are able to do so safely.“During both international and local events South African road users generally behave well and no major road crashes have been reported. We want to commend them for this and urge them to keep this record,” said Ndebele.last_img read more

Natural-Language Spellchecker After the Deadline Acquired by Automattic

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Matt Mullenweg‘s Automattic is quickly becoming the new media conglomerate to be reckoned with.The parent company behind WordPress, Automattic has been strategically scooping up hot web properties over the past couple years, from its acquiring Gravatar in 2007 to its purchasing Intense Debate, PollDaddy, and BuddyPress in 2008 and this year. Its latest buy is After the Deadline, a natural-language spell-checking plugin for WordPress and TinyMCE.As Mullenweg wrote shortly after Automattic received nearly $30 million in series B funding, “Automattic is now positioned to execute on our vision of a better web not just in blogging, but expanding our investment in anti-spam, wikis, forums, and more – small, open source pieces, loosely joined with the same approach and philosophy that has brought us this far.”After the Deadline is precisely such a property and continues the Automattic tradition of finding – and sometimes buying – elegant, hard-won solutions to very complex problems. A spring 2009 Y-Combinator reject, the application was developed by newbie entrepreneur Raphael Mudge, who had experience working in the U.S. Air Force Research Lab. Both Mudge and Mullenweg noted that contact was initiated by the blog software magnate read a post and a comment Mudge submitted about After the Deadline to Hacker News.Mudge plans to continue his natural language processing research and expand support to other languages. After the Deadline will remain free (as in beer) for non-commercial use, and, writes Mudge, “We hope to see others build on the service… We’re planning to open source the After the Deadline engine and the rule-sets that go with it. This will be the most comprehensive proofreading suite available under an open source license”The deal was done in July 2009, according to Mudge’s post.

RED Announces Helium — An 8K Super 35mm Sensor

first_imgRED builds a breathtaking custom camera for Michael Bay. The BAYHEM features the company’s all new 8K Super 35mm sensor.Top image via RED/Jarred LandLeave it to Michael Bay to get the latest custom RED camera, one that looks a bit like a Transformer itself. The BAYHEM camera features an eye-popping lime green paint job — but its most impressive feature is an all-new RED sensor.Image: Michael Bay’s custom 8K Super 35mm RED Camera via Jarred Land The 8K super 35mm sensor has been nicknamed Helium, which is the first of a new 3.65 micron sensor line of cameras. The 8K super 35mm Helium will soon be available for WEAPON sensor upgrades, with plans for a new Epic-W using the new tech. Image: Michael Bay’s custom 8K Super 35mm RED Camera via Jarred LandAs many of you might have noticed, our new Helium 3.65 micron pixel is complete and ahead of schedule… WAY ahead of schedule. Helium’s first sensor is the 8K s35 build on a completely new sensor line and will be available to WEAPON customers in the coming months. (Or the coming weeks for those that know where to look.) Helium will take pressure off our DRAGON sensor lines and allow those lines to completely focus on RAVON and SCARLET-W sensors. — Jarred Land, President RED Digital CinemaHere’s a great look at the sensor tech matched up to RED’s other sensors and other popular film formats from Phil Holland via the RedUser forum.Image via PHFXCompared to the new 8K Vista Vision sensor being tested on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Helium has much smaller and denser pixels. Guardians director James Gunn is on record expressing his excitement for the 8K Vista Vision because of the massive amount of data they could get for VFX heavy films.The large sensor size and super high resolution offered by the new WEAPON 8K, combined with its lightweight and compact size open up a whole range of new creative possibilities. — James GunnAs far as custom builds go, Bay isn’t the only one getting awesome cameras from RED. David Fincher recently scored the Alien-inspired RED Xenomorph for his Netflix original, Mindhunter.What are you thoughts on this new Michael Bay beast?
