Bail Protection

With the police now able to arrest anyone with outstanding traffic fines, the number of people in South Africa who can be arrested and be granted bail for relatively minor traffic offenses is increasing. Bail is a legal right.

We have an innovative service for our clients at a minimal cost per month per client providing assistance in posting bail following arrest for a minor crime.

This service assists in exercising your legal right, however, the transgressor still faces the full extent of the law for whatever it is alleged that he/she has done.
