Road Accident Fund

Q: This is a follow up question on the Road Accident Fund question:  

The court orders the RAF to pay interest (which is not interest according to Shariah) for late payment of the R100 000. Because the RAF paid 6 months later, the plaintiff received R100 000 from the RAF plus an additional amount (over and above the R100 000) for late payment as per court order.

This 'extra interest amount' (which is not interest money according to the Shariah) which is received from the Road Accident Fund, can it be classified as ta'zeer bil maal? If it is ta'zeer bil maal then is this extra amount permissible to use?

Rubbing impurity on the ground

Q: I ride scooters and bikes to school. I rolled over non-halal foods/sandwich packages with leftover foods several times when riding on the streets. I live in the U.S. and the sandwiches are subway wraps with wet food oil and sauce and certainly not halal. Hence, the bike tire becomes impure. When I ride it in rainy days, the water splashes from the tire onto my shoes and pants. Since the bike tire is impure the water splash is impure. I have to go back home and wash them every time I pray and it severely impacts my life. However, I heard that walking or rubbing impurity against the ground makes the impure shoe pure. Does this ruling apply to a bike/scooter tires? If so then the bike tire can be regarded as pure as it rubs against the ground so many times?
