For the first time in seven years the City of Cape Town has employed a group of 26 new traffic officers who are now in training.

Merle Lourens, Media Liason for Cape Traffic Services, says that the reason it has taken so long to employ traffic officials, is because a monotorium was set on employment while the department went through amalgamation with Metro Police. However, since August last year, the Traffic Service has been on their own.

“This will help with the shortage we are experiencing and there are so many points to cover. When we close roads for 2010, we are going to need all the help we can get,” said Lourens.

She added that employing officers will definitely help, especially with the 2010 soccer world cup just around the corner.
