In Cape Town Traffic Services’ stepped up road safety campaign, a total of 19 motorists driving under the influence of alcohol were arrested over the past weekend.

Roadblocks were held in Hout Bay, Camps Bay and the city centre and Traffic Services now shifted their attention to the Claremont area to curb drunk driving.

“During the weekend’s blitz 15 drivers were fined for driving without a licence, three for not displaying registration plates and 49 for unlicensed motor vehicles. A further 17 other driving related offences were also recorded.

"These roadblocks are part of the City’s on-going safety campaign to make Cape Town’s roads safer.”, says Traffic Services spokesperson, Merle Lourens.

Lourens says motorists who drive drunk and cause accidents do not only face heavy fines or prison sentences, but also have to live with the guilt associated with such incidents.
