Pretoria - The ongoing legal battle between Tasima - the company that operates the electronic national traffic information system - and the department of transport was back in court on Wednesday, but this time the parties agreed it was all systems go.
Tasima again turned to the Gauteng High Court to obtain an urgent order against the department which would enable it to continue with its work undisturbed.
This was about the 10th time that the parties met in court, and counsel for Tasima even joked with Judge Corrie van der Westhuizen that he was one of the few remaining judges who had not had a Tasima versus the department dispute before him.
But the parties came to a lengthy agreement which in essence entails that Tasima can go ahead with its work without any interference.
The department, Road Traffic Management Corporation and some of its officials were interdicted from instructing the various provinces not to communicate directly with Tasima regarding the eNaTIS.
They may also not interfere with any communications between the provinces and Tasima regarding the system. The contractor complained in the past that provinces were instructed to only communicate with it through the department.
