    Unfortunately must agree about people being transported on back of bakkies and trucks. Actually not aware of any developed country that allows it, but then this is(or used to be) SA. Not to add about safety belts etc.

    From business perspective, if your business case is based solely on the VAT factor, me believes maybe you do not have valid business case.

    Ok, this is only my opinion

    I have had 1 such a fine issued haven't paid it yet not sure what the status is and am now using my double cab for work purposes as I am not willing to risk a heart attack for the enjoyment purposes of the Metro police. My suggestion is that double cabs should be tax deductable but the standard bakkies and not luxury ones like 3 litres and 3.2 etc. because luxury vehicles are not for working. I now also use a trailer when I carry a lot of stock for working on site.

    I have an update on this...

    I chatted to Outlaw Shaun, as he makes roller shutter doors.
    This discussion led me to Andre of Tauro (C-Group).

    www.tauro.co.za - they make all kinds of vehicle accessories, including load nets etc...

    He is an avid 4x4'er & was in fact off to 3 Provinces the day I went to see him.

    A few more discussions led Andre to make up a net that hooks onto a very flat bracket.

    Basically think of a small pool net standing vertically between the seats/wheel arches.

    He finds it easier to make them bespoke rather than s universal size.

    It can be removed in seconds & costs under R1000.00

    I gave him the measurements for 2 of my bakkies & collected last week.

    As soon as I've installed one I'll post pics.

    The next step will then be to see if it stops JMPD issuing a fine.

    My neighbour is an electrical contractor, does a lot of work for companies such as Shoprite.

    CANT get onto their sites with workers in the back of a bakkie.

    He ended up buying the VW Caddie Crewcab.

    Proper 5 seater, with easy access to his tools and materials.

    Using a Caddy CrewCab for The House Doctor would be like using a plastic beach shovel to do diamond mining ....

    certainly limited to a tool and people carrier ... okay, just a tool-squared carrier


    Not practical for rubble removal, but actually darned good for what he uses it for.
