oa De Jure - "Quad motorcycle" qualified as a motor vehicle in terms of the RAF Act 56 of 1996 - requirements relaxed in Jeffrey v Road Accident Fund 2012 4 SA 475 (GSJ) : notes
A claimant can only be successful with a claim against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) if the claimant was in fact injured by the negligent driving of a "motor vehicle" or "other unlawful" act connected to a "motor vehicle or the driving thereof" (Klopper Third Party Compensation (2012) 64). Thus the definition of a "motor vehicle" is of paramount importance. If the injury or death of a person was caused by something other than the driving of a "motor vehicle" or "other unlawful act" then the claimant would not be able to claim from the RAF (Klopper 56).
