Pay your traffic fines
No matter how conscientiously we drive, most of us can’t avoid picking up a speeding fine every now and then. Fines are the bane of many a journey and the thought of having to visit the traffic department to pay one is often as upsetting as the fine itself.
Thankfully, though, that’s one aspect of the ordeal that we can help to make much easier since you can now pay your traffic fines through Absa.
If you are an Absa customer, simply choose the payment channel that suits you best - Absa Online, Cellphone Banking, Telephone Banking, your nearest branch or Absa ATM - and if you are not an existing customer, you can pay by visiting your closest Absa branch.
Please note that this payment option currently only applies to fines obtained in certain municipalities. Absa customers can draw from their cheque or savings accounts to make the payment, but not from a credit card.

- Are daunted by the thought of visiting the traffic department to pay your fine
- Would like to pay your fine while conducting your normal daily banking
- Are not an Absa customer and would like a convenient way to pay your fine
- Would like proof that you have paid your fine, in the form of a receipt
