SA’s drivers disregard heavy fines
South African motorists are still showing a strong disregard for the heavy fines they could be given for driving under the influence of alcohol and hundreds have been arrested so far this holiday season. A senior police spokesperson reminded motorists who drink and drive that they could face fines of up to 120-thouand rands or six years in prison. The legal limit is naught-point-05 grams per 100 millilitres. The spokesperson pointed out that this means that a motorist should not drink more than two cans of beer or two glasses of wine or just one double tot of spirit liquor every two hours. Roadblocks will be increased during the New Year festivities.
