The City of Cape Town’s Traffic Services has identified the traffic offenders with the most outstanding warrants. The total value of the 10 fines amounts to R155 000.
Spokesperson for the department, Inez Lackay, says that one of the top offenders has come forward to pay for some of his fines.
“One of the City’s top 10 traffic offenders, an owner of an Opel Sedan, who had 12 outstanding warrants of arrest, voluntarily came forward and paid for 10 of those outstanding warrants,” said Lackay, “this after numerous house visits was done by our warrant team.
Lackay says that two of the top ten traffic offenders are currently out of the country, and that the department is patiently waiting for them to return.
According to the department, in order to avoid a warrant of arrest, motorists who have received traffic fines should pay them before the court expiry date.
