A Human Rights Organisation that aims to protect the rights of South African citizens affected by accidents on our roads.

The Road Accident Benefit Scheme (RABS) is a draft Bill that is intended to replace the current Road Accident Fund (RAF). It will be a move away from the insurance-based system of compensation to that of a structured benefit scheme.

South African road users would be negatively affected and impacted by the controversial RABS Bill. Claimants will be forced to manage their own claims and benefits will be significantly reduced.

APRAV will strive to make sure that the new scheme is affordable, practically executable and that the public’s legal rights are protected. It needs to provide proper medical treatment, rehabilitation and support to victims.
