Motor Vehicle Accident Fund, formally known as Motor Vehicle Insurance Fund was enacted in 1986. The Fund started operating in 1st January 1987. At the time, the Fund was mandated to provide compensation for certain loss or damage arising out of motor vehicle accidents.
The 1986 Act was later amended through MVA Fund Act No. 6 of 1998 which introduced new caps and limitations of benefits to ensure financial sustainability of the Fund.
The two Acts of 1986 and 1998 relied heavily on fault of the driver as the basis of the Fund’s liability and compensation, hence, were known as “fault systems”. On the contrary, the current Act which provides for automatic cover of claimants, irrespective of the cause of accident while providing limited cover to negligent parties hence it is referred to as a “hybrid system”.
